Brian L. Roberts started the hard way in the cable TV business, climbing poles to string cable for new subscribers' homes. He admits now that he had "trouble carrying the ladder. I was too weak. I was too skinny." As the boss's son, however, he survived that summer job and returned to the University of Pennsylvania's Wharton School. Competitive by nature, he became an All-American squash player. After his 1981 graduation, he returned to Comcast Corp. to work his way up a different ladder.
