Congratulations to Ray Cole for being inducted into the Broadcast+Cable Hall of Fame! Ray will join a prestigious group of broadcasters and executives such as Oprah Winfrey, George Bodenheimer, Peter Jennings, Ted Koppel, Barbara Walters, Diane Sawyer, Robin Roberts, Howard Cosell and Michael J. Fox. The only other Iowan to ever be inducted in the Hall of Fame is Johnny Carson!

This coveted award honors the pioneers, innovators and stars of broadcast, cable and broadband television. These honorees are recognized for their successful careers and truly changing the paradigm of the broadcasting industry.

As a professional speaker, Ray shares stories of notable personalities who shaped Cole’s life. “It’s about the relentless pursuit of becoming the best version of ourselves possible. It’s all about making the most of each and every one of our ‘winning’ qualities by fanning even the smallest sparks of possibility into a bonfire of success,” Cole said.
