INTRODUCING THE CLASS OF 2019

Meet the Cable TV Pioneers Class of 2019!

From programmers to pole climbers, marketers to researchers, engineers to operators, the Class of 2019 embodies the know-how, tenacity and innovative leadership that continues to grow the cable industry. Add in a good measure of community involvement and it results in 25 outstanding men and women who were inducted at the 53nd Annual Cable TV Pioneers Banquet in New Orleans.

And for the first time ever, the Cable Pioneers recognized the achievements of the DOCSIS group of men and women whose expertise and dedication cleared the path for cable as the technology leader it is today.
