The economy is down, as are travel budgets, while layoffs are up. So how will York induce the industry to fly to Los Angeles for The Cable show? If anyone can do it, this Cable Pioneer and Hall of Famer can. In fact, by the time you read this, the detail-oriented York and her staff will have been working for months on the 2010 show, checking and re-checking everything from panel topics and booth logistics to the Battle of the Bands (one of Barbara’s ideas). And if you’re hungry in L.A., ask Barbara for a tip. Her knowledge of restaurants rivals that of cable’s resident gourmand/partymeister Chuck Klein.
