The Cablefax Regional Rainmakers honors the operators, programmers, executives, associations and lobbyists who are making outstanding contributions at local and/or regional levels – be it in operations, affiliate sales, news and sports programming, state legislation, lobbying and more.

Nothing informs, entertains and helps develop a community like regional media – and ours is the only benchmarking program to celebrate those who are leading this very special charge.
