Charter Communications says it would commit to appointing more minorities to its board of directors as it looks to regulators to approve its proposed merger with Time Warner Cable.

The St. Louis-based cable company will appoint an African-American director, an Asian-American director and a Hispanic director to its board within two years of the sale closing, it said Friday.

The company also committed to appointing a chief diversity officer and implementing unspecified other measures to improve diversity at the company and in its programming.

"Charter strives to reflect the great diversity of the communities we serve in all our business practices as a key component of our continued success,” said CEO Tom Rutledge in a statement.

Sharpton calls it more than 'superficial statements'

In its continuing efforts to make its proposed merger with Time Warner Cable and Bright House as consumer and FCC friendly as possible, Charter announced it had struck a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with a dozen diversity groups.

Among the promises the company has made for the merged New Charter include adding one African American, one Asian American/Pacific Islander and one Latino American to its board within two years of the transactions close, which is contingent on FCC approval.






Charter will also name a chief diversity officer and will expand and "build on" its efforts in corporate governance, employment and workforce recruitment, procurement, programming, and philanthropy and community investment in organizations serving "communities of color."

BRADENTON -- With grand plans to cut down on the time it takes wandering grocery store aisles to creating water bottles that tell you when the water becomes unsafe, five student projects from the State College of Florida Collegiate School are headed to Tampa Tuesday to compete with students across the region.

Countywide projects in the annual Bright House Bright Ideas competition were whittled down last week to the five Manatee County finalists from the State College of Florida Collegiate School. On Tuesday, the students will compete at the regional level, at the Museum of Science and Industry in Tampa.

Students from Pinellas, Citrus, Polk, Pasco, and Hillsborough counties are also part of the competition. One winner will be selected to represent Tampa Bay in the final round of competition, where one finalist from each of Bright House Networks six service areas will be selected to compete at the national





competition. These six finalists will travel to Orlando, and compete in front of a studio audience. The grand prize winner will have the chance to work with a leading innovation firm to build a virtual prototype and a business plan.
