Having secured new annual sponsorship commitments, Women in Cable & Telecommunications Thursday announced its 2015 Touchstone partners, the companies that pony up funds for memberships, programs and events.

The top-level funders (called "Strategic" partners) for 2015 — WICT won't quantify what that funding level is — are Comcast/NBCUniversal, Time Warner Cable, Turner Broadcasting System and Suddenlink Communications.

The second-tier, "Catalyst" partners are Accenture, AMC Networks, ARRIS, Bright House Networks, Cox Communications, Disney and ESPN Media Networks, and Scripps Networks Interactive.
