A committee of industry peers and leaders selects each year’s inductees from a large group of nominees.

Honorees are chosen based on their leadership, entrepreneurship, and innovation in media. Since 1998, 140 inspiring people have been inducted into the Cable Hall of Fame.

The Cable Hall of Fame includes presentation of the William J. Bresnan Award, conferred annually on one person from within the industry who has demonstrated deep and genuine commitment to ethics in business throughout their career.
