James Lawrence Dolan, 69, a business tycoon, is the executive chairman and CEO of MSG Sports, Entertainment and Network.

Dolan is also accountable for the operation of NBA team New York Knicks and NHL team New York Rangers. He rose to the networking industry by inheriting his father’s company, Cablevision.

Initially a musician, Dolan switched careers after earning a degree in communications from SUNY New Paltz. His father, Charles, handed him the duty of launching a sports radio and made him CEO in 1995.

Dolan’s Cablevision became the 50% owner of Madison Square Garden after purchasing it from Viacom.

In return, James would go on to be the owner of MSG’s assets, which included teams like the NBA’s Knicks, NHL’s Rangers, WNBA’s NY Liberty, and AHL’s Hartford Wolf Pack.

Additionally, Dolan serves as the governor of Knicks and Rangers, looking after its daily operations.

Does James Dolan Have A Daughter?

For a man with 6 kids, it is very amusing that James Dolan does not have a daughter.

At least not publicly; however, in 2016, there were reports of a woman claiming to be the daughter of a billionaire businessman. 

Nevertheless, these claims were later dismissed as no trustworthy evidence was available to back the claims.
