PITTSBURGH -- The American Cable Association (ACA) announced that Ted Hearn has joined the organization as vice president of communications, a new position intended to strengthen the voice of small and independent cable operators in their effort to bring policy change to Washington, D.C.

In his new role, Hearn will be responsible for overseeing all communications efforts at ACA, joining the trade organization at a time when Congress and the Obama administration are developing broadband policies that are likely to have an impact on ACA members with longstanding ties to rural American communities. Hearn will report directly to ACA president and CEO Matthew M. Polka.

"ACA is extremely happy that Ted will be joining our team," Polka said. “He knows the issues, he knows how Washington works, and he knows how to tell people about it. His work will be invaluable to telling the story and unique challenges of independent cable operators and their customers.”

"It is the priority of our Association that we communicate effectively to four key constituencies: members, policymakers, media, and industry," said ACA Board Chairman Steve Friedman, COO of Wave Broadband in Kirkland, WA. “ACA has done that, and we look forward to doing even more with Ted’s help.”
