The Cable Center has named its newest class of Hall of Fame Inductees, which includes a current and former association head, programmers and arguably cable's answer to Walter Cronkite.

The seven inductees are CTAM president Char Beales; Showtime chairman Matt Blank; Heritage Communications co-founder Jim Cownie; Prime II Investments chairman Bob Hughes; Cablevision COO Tom Rutledge; CNN anchor emeritus Bernard Shaw; and Tom Wheeler, managing director of Core Capital Partners and former NCTA president.

The 12th annual Cable Hall of Fame celebration will be held on Tuesday, Oct. 27 at the Colorado Convention Center as part of Cable Connections Fall, from Oct. 25 through Oct. 30.
