Title: President/CEO, Boycom Communications
Years in Cable: 30
Education: University of Missouri/Columbia
Best Advice: Trust everyone, but brand your cattle and never take a knife to a gunfight.

Why Her? Boyers tells it like it is, and people listen to her because of it. Running a small traditional cable in rural America, she has testified before the Senate on the state of rural broadband and often becomes the face of the truly small and rural operator.

I watch the majority of programming on this device: My television in our bedroom… BOYCOM, of course!

TV show I’d most like to have a cameo in: “The West Wing”!

John, Paul, George or Ringo? None of the above, I’m an Elvis girl!

I wish Congress would just…  go home and leave us alone!

Twitter or Instagram? Instagram

My favorite newfound hobby: Writing a cookbook of my family’s favorite recipes, including history of our family, pictures, etc.

One thing I would do all the time if I could: Cook!

My ideal celebrity partner on Dancing with the Stars: John Wayne

Oscars or Grammys? Oscars

Favorite Restaurant: Oceannaire

Favorite vacation spot: Maui

Beach or mountains? Why not both?

Alec Baldwin… NY or LA? Who cares?

Favorite TV show as a kid: “Gunsmoke”

The last time I had a good laugh: Right now… reading these questions!

Dish I can make and that would impress a celebrity chef: My mother’s chicken and dumplin’s!

My favorite business/motivational book: The Holy Bible… New King James Version

If someone forced me to cut the cord and only watch 3 over-the-top shows, they would be: Military Channel (now called the Hero Channel); Food Network and “Love or List It” on HGTV.
