"On behalf of The Cable Center and the board of directors, we are thrilled that the Motorola Foundation has continued its support of our Cable Mavericks Lecture Series," said Larry Satkowiak, president and CEO of The Cable Center. "Cable Mavericks is The Cable Center's signature program, and our collaboration with Motorola allows us to continue to grow this program, both within the cable industry and on additional college campuses across the country."
