American Cable Association President and CEO Matthew M. Polka On Kyle McSlarrow’s Plan To Leave NCTA

PITTSBURGH, November 19, 2010 - "Over the years, Kyle and I devoted a lot of time and energy to building a strong personal relationship, one that allowed both organizations to grow and prosper as well as craft creative solutions to important public policy questions. As President and CEO of the National Cable & Telecommunications Association for the past five years, Kyle deserves enormous praise for reaching out to ACA's leadership and recognizing that the independent operator community is an important part of the cable industry. Whether the issue was digital television, set-top boxes, or broadband stimulus funding, NCTA and ACA worked together to achieve results that struck an appropriate balance between the needs of government and the concerns of private industry. I consider Kyle not just a political ally but also a friend. All of us at ACA wish him and his family a bright and happy future."
