You’ll notice several changes in this edition of CableFAX: The Magazine’s Diversity Issue.

View Issue

First, instead of repeating the standard bio profiles, we ask most of the executives on our lists about their jobs, companies and interests. Their responses, edited for space here but available in full at our site, make for interesting reading. Knowing a person’s views, career challenges, even their drink or cuisine of choice can help build a relationship, which could become a business advantage.

We also dispense with our traditional Top 50 ranked list. Instead you’ll see a ranked list of 75. This larger list coincides with an unusual year, one where NAMIC and BET celebrate 30th anniversaries. We thought those milestones deserved a slightly longer list.

As in years past, we’ve included unranked lists of influential executives beyond the 75, plus important regional players.

You’d think compiling a list of 75 would be easier than making one with 50 names. So did I; it was just as difficult.

Despite the paucity of minority executives in some of cable’s C-suites, there’s an abundance of top-flight minority executives throughout the industry. Many are included in these pages. Again for space reasons, plenty of deserving people are not.

In what has become tradition, NAMIC and CableFAX celebrated this year’s magazine and those in it during a Diversity Week breakfast Sept 14 at the Hilton, NY. With diversity in cable still a partially realized idea, we hope this magazine and the points raised during the breakfast will provoke a deeper discussion about this important issue and perhaps lead to some results.

A word of thanks to all who spent time nominating executives to appear in these pages. Thanks, too, to those who helped us secure interviews and photos.
