Solomon skates off after 21 years at ABC

Stephen Solomon, a 21-year veteran of ABC, is exiting his role as senior VP, sports planning and administration, to take a newly created position with the National Hockey League. The new position is effective March 1.

Solomon started with the Alphabet web in 1972 as an attorney in the labor relations department and has held several management positions since.

He will be responsible for development, planning and coordination of the NHL’s broadcasting and communications/public relations functions. He will also oversee NHL Enterprises.

Solomon has been responsible for ABC’s involvement with the upcoming World Cup soccer tournament and its role in telecasting the now-defunct World League of American Football. Solomon also spearheaded the network’s offering of college football via pay-per-view last season.

He is believed to be one of the 500 employees opting to accept the network’s voluntary buyout offer (see story, page 1). No replacement was named at ABC.
