Radio, television and cable industry leader Peter Francis Storer has died. He was 81.

Elizabeth Storer said Tuesday that her father died Sunday at his home in Saratoga.

Peter Storer was chief executive officer of Storer Communications, a multiple system cable operator with cable franchises in more than 500 communities in 18 states.

A family obituary says Storer followed his father, George Storer, into the industry and became CEO of Storer Broadcasting following his father's death in 1975. Storer guided the company until it was bought out in 1986.
