Krone’s charter will comprise all aspects of the association, including general management, government, regulatory, industry and public affairs, as well as grassroots activities.

“As much as I will miss having David at AT&T, I know that he will serve NCTA exceedingly well, and I look forward to working with him in his new role,” AT&T Broadband president Leo Hindery added.
