MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski were inducted into the Cable Hall of Fame at a ceremony in Boston Monday night. “It was a great honor…to be celebrated along with pioneers in the industry,” said Scarborough Tuesday morning.
The Cable Hall of Fame recognizes leaders who have “shaped and advanced (the) industry.” Since 1998, 121 men and women have been inducted. Honorees are chosen by a committee of industry peers “based on their leadership, innovation and contributions to the industry and their influence upon people, communities, organizations and institutions served by telecommunications.”
The Cable Hall announced Brzezinski and Scarborough would be part of the Class of 2016 in an announcement last October.
