C-SPAN will televise the Cable Center's 2020 Cable TV Pioneers induction ceremony on C-SPAN3 and stream it at, the organizations said.

The 54th annual induction ceremony for the 2020 class of 22 individuals, a mix of CEOs, founders and others who "continue to contribute" to the growth of the cable industry, is scheduled for Friday, Dec. 4, 2020, at 9 p.m.

“While the restrictions of COVID-19 prevent a traditional induction banquet, the pandemic has created a new and unprecedented opportunity to showcase the Induction as a special televised presentation on C-SPAN3,” said Dave Fellows, chair of Cable TV Pioneers. The group said it would provide more information about the induction program soon.
