Members Include Executives Known for Their Work in Advancing the Cable and Media Industry
Denver — January 30, 2020 — The Cable Center announces its inaugural team of Los Angeles Ambassadors, a group of Southern California-based senior industry executives dedicated to championing the influential nonprofit’s programs, increasing its membership across Southern California, and driving The Cable Center’s goal of connecting people and ideas to advance innovation. The twelve seasoned leaders and influencers span the entire cable industry, from content providers to MSOs to associations and consultancies, and have each played a major role in shaping the cable and media industry.
As part of its Vision 2025—developed from surveying more than 200 industry stakeholders—the group is tasked with advancing and modernizing The Cable Center’s programs, such as the Intrapreneurship Academy and annual Cable Hall of Fame, while leveraging the experience and stories of leaders whose contributions created today’s communications ecosystem.
“Our Vision 2025 initiative guides a future where The Cable Center will influence and lead through valuable programming, visionary perspectives, rich resources and deep connections,” said Jana Henthorn, President and CEO, The Cable Center. “Together, with our newly established L.A. Ambassadors, we will invest time, talent, and treasure to advance our greatest resource within the technology, and media, industries—our people.”
“Each of The Cable Center’s inaugural L.A. Ambassadors bring a unique and powerful insight and experience,” said Diane Christman, Chief Programs Officer and SVP of Development, The Cable Center. “While the L.A. Ambassadors program is just beginning, the impact, innovation, and initiatives we’re driving will help shape our industry for years to come.”
The team will also play an integral role in growing the nonprofit’s network across SoCal. This includes recruitment efforts from studios and other organizations to gain more advocacy and involvement for The Cable Center’s programs.
