CEO Walter McCormick Jr. to keynote Telecom 2008 at NAB

Walter B. McCormick Jr., president and CEO of the United States Telecom Association, presented a keynote at the Telecom2008 conference on Monday, April 14, during the NAB Show. McCormick’s keynote, which outlined the state of the broadband industry, was followed by a discussion with two executives from AT&T and Verizon, who explored how their companies are bringing the broadband revolution to television, communications and entertainment.

Titled, “State of Broadband: Next Generation Networks and the Future of Entertainment,” McCormick’s keynote addressed high-speed Internet services that are driving innovation in communications, entertainment, health care, education, and beyond.

Following McCormick’s speech, two of the most influential voices at the intersection of content and communications, Dan York, AT&T executive vice president of programming, and Terry Denson, vice president of content strategy and acquisition Verizon, discussed their respective companies’ video initiatives.

AT&T and Verizon are investing billions of dollars to build an advanced communications infrastructure across the country and to deliver new television services to millions of Americans. The executives will discuss what this means for the broadcasting community and what the future may hold for consumers in a broadband world. The discussion was moderated by Regina Hopper, executive vice president of U.S. Telecom.

With more than 25 years experience in telecommunications, McCormick joined U.S. Telecom in 2001 and has guided the organization’s evolution into one of the top trade associations.
