Years in Cable: 7

Education: United States Military Academy, West Point

Best Advice in 7 Words or Less: Work hard, play harder.

A graduate of West Point, a pilot and a massive Pittsburgh Steelers fan, Fore thinks the biggest innovation in cable over the last year is remote apps for iPads and iPhones. And what would his app do, if he created one? “Clean my golf clubs and take out the garbage.” Let us know when it’s out—we’ll be all over that.
