Steve Friedman Appointed Vice Chair of the American Cable Association

PITTSBURGH, January 16, 2008 —During its first quarter meeting, the American Cable Association’s (ACA) board of directors appointed Steve Friedman, COO of Wave Broadband of Kirkland, Wash., as vice chair. Friedman is one of ACA’s most veteran board members, serving on ACA’s board several times since the organization’s founding in 1993. Friedman currently serves as ACA’s treasurer and as a member of ACA’s executive committee.

“Steve brings the best of both worlds to ACA with his long-serving commitment to representing independent cable’s policy concerns, while also being on the cutting edge of today’s technology and operations,” said Patrick Knorr, ACA’s chairman of the board and COO of Sunflower Broadband/The World Co. of Lawrence, Kan.

“I’m honored by this appointment and proud to be an independent cable operator,” said Friedman. “Independent cable does not receive the recognition it should by our industry or by Washington, and I’m committed to changing that for our members and their customers.”
