Cable TV Pioneers
During the 1966 NCTA Convention in Miami Beach, 21 early entrepreneurs of the cable industry met to become the first Cable Pioneers. Since then, membership has since grown to over 700. Over the years, the group established the National Cable Center and Museum, the “Cable Hall of Fame” annual dinner, and supported the Center’s Oral History program.
Anyone can attend Pioneers’ banquets, but only those who have made meaningful contributions to the industry and can show a minimum of 20 years of direct involvement in the cable industry may be considered for membership.
