NAMIC’s diversity study released this week may have disappointed some hoping for more progress, but NCTA pres Kyle McSlarrow lauded cable for being "fairly soul searching" when it comes to diversity. "I’m proud of an industry that’s honest about self-assessment and where we stand," he told NAMIC attendees Tues.

McSlarrow also called on audience members to help "put some flesh and blood on the bones of what this industry represents" by writing op-eds, making speeches and visiting Washington.
