CHICAGO – The excitement was in Chicago last month as ‘The Cable Show 2011” gathered at the McCormick Place Convention Center. Many celebrities associated with the cable industry, including Oprah Winfrey, Paris Hilton and Kelsey Grammer, participated in the event and provided meet-and-greet opportunities.
The Cable Show is hosted by the National Cable and Telecommunications Association (NCTA) and was a three-day immersion into everything cable can do. It was the full spectrum of the global cable industry, including many of the television networks that populate the current media.
