Why Him? How many cable industry execs have FCC Chairman on their CV? We thought so… Since joining NCTA in April, Powell has already become an advocate for cable’s ever-burgeoning technology, services and content, relating at the 2011 Cable Show that the industry’s broadband platform is “a critical part of the infrastructure needed to realize our national ambition.”
Year Ahead: Powell is likely to maintain focus on keeping federal regulation at bay as cable continues to innovate. ?
