Here’s s hint. What they all have in common — along with John Evans, the CEO of Evans Telecommunications, and Dubby Wynne, the retired CEO of Landmark Communications — will happen in May in Boston.
That’s when all seven will be inducted into the Cable Television Hall of Fame. The co-hosts of MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” are Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough.
Longtime cable veteran Michael Willner, who is on The Cable Center’s board of directors, said in a statement: “I am thrilled to welcome these seven industry leaders into the Cable Hall of Fame. This year’s class members represent so many different aspects of our industry — from programming to operators, to technology and equipment. Each one of them has had a unique and immense impact on the growth of the cable industry and its influence on today’s society.”
The induction ceremony will take place May 16, 2016, at the Westin Boston Waterfront. As usual, it happens in conjunction with the annual national convention of the National Cable & Telecommunications Association, which next year runs from May 16-18 in Boston.
