Associates said Monday.

Communications Inc. VP of marketing Joe Rooney and AT&T Broadband senior VP
of programming Allan Singer.

Surveys Unlimited president Alisse Waterston and Horowitz Associates
president Howard Horowitz will also share data from three recent Horowitz

'The impact of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks and the subsequent war in
Afghanistan, compounded by the general slowdown in our economy and the trend
toward consolidation in our industry, make for a challenging and confusing
environment,' Horowitz said in a press release.

'Success in 2002 will depend on how well programmers, service providers and
MSOs listen to what their customers are saying,' he added.
