This year’s National Cable and Telecommunications Association show, also called “The Cable Show,” (the big trade show of the cable industry) is in Washington DC, and with the close access to America’s political and business elite, every cable news channel will be represented.

Most of the appearances will be on panels and autograph signings on the show floor, but in the case of the cable business news  networks there will also be live reporting.

CNBC’s media business reporter Julia Boorstin will report from the NCTA floor throughout the day tomorrow, June 11. CNBC’s Becky Quick is also interviewing her boss’ boss, Comcast CEO Brian Roberts, on stage there tomorrow morning. Fox Business Network will have Liz Claman reporting from the show floor tomorrow. Her guests are expected to include Viacom CEO Phillipe Dauman and Discovery CEO David Zaslav, among others. Bloomberg TV has Betty Liu reporting from the show floor tomorrow. Her guests will include Comcast’s Roberts¬†and Showtime CEO Matt Blank.
