TiVo's Tom Rogers to Keynote Technology Luncheon
As president and CEO of TiVo, Tom Rogers oversees the many innovative business strategies that have helped TiVo change the way people watch television.

At NAB2007, Rogers will give the keynote address during the NAB Technology Luncheon on Wednesday, April 18, as part of the NAB2007 Broadcast Engineering Conference.

Before taking the helm of TiVo, Rogers served as chairman and CEO of Primedia Inc. Prior to that, he was executive vice president of NBC and president of NBC Cable, where he created CNBC, a business news channel, and MSNBC, the NBC/Microsoft cable channel and Internet joint venture.

Rogers came to NBC from Capitol Hill, where he was senior counsel to the U.S. House of Representatives Telecommunications Consumer Protection and Finance Subcommittee, where he played a key role in the drafting of the Cable Act of 1984.

The Technology Luncheon also features the presentation of the NAB Engineering Achievement Awards. Since 1959, the awards have honored individuals who have made outstanding achievements and contributions in the broadcast engineering profession. This year the award recipients are Victor Tawil of the Association for Maximum Service Television (for television), and Louis A. King, chairman of the board of Kintronic Laboratories (for radio).
