The Program

Building upon the momentum of the past nine years of producing lectures and forums with The Cable Center (www.cablecenter.org), the goal is to continue offering unprecedented access to top cable and digital TV executives for college students, and vice versa. Over 5,000 students, representing over 100 colleges and universities across the U.S., and 100 media executives have participated in recent years. We’re excited to engage a new audience for the 2013 program.


To create an authentic connection of media leaders, cable and beyond, with the best and brightest college students and recent grads

To produce a forum where executives share their paths to their current positions, and provide insights and opportunities into the innovative and fast-moving industry, and;

To develop the leading on-line resource for students, including a robust list of job and internship links, articles and candid guest commentary.
