Deeply committed to the Cable Television industry.
About Harron Communications, L.P.
Harron Communications' beginnings date back to the early 1900's when Paul F. Harron, Sr. started in the media business by selling advertising on Vaudeville curtains and then later progressed into owning and operating broadcast radio and television stations.
In 1964, as a defensive measure to protect Harron's Utica, NY broadcast television property, Harron obtained the franchise to build and operate a cable television system in Utica. Under the leadership of Paul F. Harron, Jr., who succeeded his father as President and CEO of Harron in 1977, Harron's cable television strategy turned offensive and Paul Harron, Jr. expanded the Company to serve more than 300,000 subscribers in the states of Massachusetts, Michigan, New York, New Hampshire, Pennsylvania, Texas, and Vermont.
Harron Communications Corp was sold in 1999 to Adelphia Communications, but the Harron family remained actively involved and deeply committed to the cable television industry through their involvement in MetroCast. The Harron family formed MetroCast in 1998 to acquire a cable television system in the Lakes Region of New Hampshire serving 30,000 subscribers.
MetroCast has continued to grow since 1998, and in September of 2005, the Harron family partnered with BV Investment Partners, formerly Boston Ventures, to form Harron Communications, LP, doing business as MetroCast Communications in the states of Alabama, Connecticut, Maryland, Mississippi, Maine, New Hampshire, Pennsylvania, South Carolina and Virginia. In April 2012, Harron completed a buyout of BV Investment Partners' ownership interest in Harron as part of a company refinancing.
