Emerson Trustee Doug Holloway ’76, president and founder of Homewood Media, was named to the 26th Annual Cable Hall of Fame by the The Cable Center, a Denver-based educational nonprofit serving the industry.
Last year, Holloway developed and launched two multicultural family channels by and for people of color: UKW Media and Urbn-TV.
Holloway will be inducted into the Hall of Fame along five other innovative entrepreneurs in the “connectivity, content, and media industry” in an April 27, 2023 ceremony at the Ziegfeld Ballroom in New York City.
Joining Holloway in the Cable Hall of Fame’s class of 2023 will be Tom Adams, former executive vice president for field operations, Charter Communications, Inc.; Italia Commisso Weinand, executive vice president for programming and human resources, Mediacom Communications Corp.; HBO’s Curb Your Enthusiasm; Julie Laulis, chair of the board, president, and CEO, Cable One, Inc.; and Wonya Lucas, president and CEO, Hallmark Media.
“The members of our 2023 Cable Hall of Fame class reflect all cornerstones of our industry and are true trailblazers in their field. Their dedication and hard work have helped to shape and grow our industry,” said Michael Willner, president and CEO of Penthera Partners and chairman of The Cable Center’s Board of Directors. “I am looking forward to gathering with our industry friends again this April to welcome them to the Cable Hall of Fame.”
