'MCN’ Names 2010 Wonder Women

The editors of Multichannel News named this year’s class of Wonder Women, marking the 12th time the award will be bestowed since its creation in 1999.

The class of 2010 represents some of the most accomplished and influential women in the cable and telecommunications universe. These are women whose commitment, innovation and vision have fostered the growth and success of their respective companies while leaving an indelible mark on the industry overall.

The 2010 class will also be lauded at a March 24, 2010, luncheon at the Grand Hyatt New York, co-hosted by the New York chapter of Women in Cable Telecommunications.
