DENVER -- The Cable Center announced today that it has received a $1 million personal donation in honor of John Malone to name the John Malone Theater at The Cable Center. The naming gift is provided by Mike Fries, president and chief executive officer, Liberty Global, Inc.; Greg Maffei, president and chief executive officer, Liberty Media Corporation; and David Zaslav, president and chief executive officer, Discovery Communications. The theater will be dedicated during a special celebration on September 7th at The Cable Center.

Fries, Maffei and Zaslav stated: "The naming of this theater in honor of John Malone is a small token of our appreciation for all that he has done for us in our careers, as well as for the industry as a whole. Over 40 years, John has played a leading role in building the infrastructure, programming services and companies that today deliver television and high-speed Internet to the majority of Americans, and an increasing proportion of European consumers. Without John Malone, there would be no cable industry as we know it, and we are forever in debt to his vision, perseverance and dedication."
