About the Cable TV Pioneers

During the 1966 NCTA Convention, 21 early entrepreneurs of the Cable TV industry became the first class of the Cable TV Pioneers class. For over two decades the Cable Pioneers have been responsible for establishing and funding the Cable Centre. In the 1990’s it moved to the campus of Denver University from Penn State. The Cable Pioneers initiated a further recognition of service to the cable TV industry through the “Cable Hall of Fame” programme. The Cable Hall of Fame (Chello) award is the industry gold standard. Bill received his Chello Award in 2015.
