Two Denver dignitaries, Daniel L. Ritchie, chairman and CEO, The Denver Center for the Performing Arts, and David Van Valkenburg, former CEO and COO, TeleWest PLC (UK), were inducted earlier this week into the 2014 Cable Hall of Fame during a celebration at the JW Marriott in Los Angeles.
The other 2014 honorees:
Christiane Amanpour, chief international correspondent and anchor; CNN’s Alex Best, (retired) executive vice president, engineering, Cox Communications, Inc.; Fred Dressler, (deceased) executive vice president, programming, Time Warner Cable and
Jerald L. Kent, chairman and CEO, Suddenlink Communications.
Honorees were chosen based on their dedication and contributions to the cable industry by a committee of industry peers and leaders. The 2014 Cable Hall of Fame selection committee was chaired by Glenn Britt, chairman and CEO of Time Warner Cable and a member of The Cable Center’s honorary board of directors.
Since 1998, 102 men and women have been inducted into the Cable Hall of Fame.
