President of MCTV will discuss critical issues facing cable companies on
C-SPAN’s series ‘The Communicators’
WASHINGTON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–SubscriberWise®, the nation’s largest issuing consumer reporting agency
for the communications industry and the leading provider of business
rules and scoring technology in telecommunications, proudly announced
today that Robert Gessner, President of MCTV, American Cable Association
Chairman, and board member for SubscriberWise, will participate in a
discussion with C-SPAN’s ‘The Communicators’ on Saturday, April 2, 2016,
at 6:30pm ET. Gessner will focus on a range of issues facing the cable
“C-SPAN’s ‘The Communicators’ is a program that seeks engaged thought
leaders who play a crucial role in shaping the digital future,” said
David Howe, president of SubscriberWise and credit manager for MCTV.
“Bob has decades of experience in the cable industry and he’s always
been eager to share his knowledge and experiences. Bob’s insight will
certainly enhance this discussion as the industry faces unprecedented
changes. I encourage the nation to tune in on Saturday evening.”
“It is a pleasure to join ACA President Matt Polka and C-SPAN host Peter
Slen for ‘The Communicators.’ Small- and mid-sized companies rarely have
an opportunity to appear on a national medium, so it was an honor to
represent the hundreds of companies that work diligently, effectively
and quietly in our communities. Many significant policy issues affect
our industry both in the present and in the future, often impacting
independent providers far differently than larger companies. C-SPAN
delivers a valuable service by providing this forum. I hope it can
provide balance and substance for consumers,” said Robert Gessner
