The article focuses on the issues that will be faced by the next president of National Cable & Telecommunications Association (NCTA) in the U.S. The successor of the outgoing president Kyle McSlarrow must have the skills to manage the changes in how cable operators deliver their contents, and capacity to cope with big firms increasing disparate interests. James Assey, a long-time Democratic staff member on the Senate Commerce Committee, is considered as the second choice to replace McSlarrow.
