Hindery mends fences

WASHINGTON — Tele-Communications Inc. prexy and CEO Leo Hindery laid out a plan here Thursday to cable execs for his company to emerge as a model citizen in the corporate world.

Among those initiatives, Hindery announced a 15-year carriage agreement for C-SPAN and C-SPAN 2. Both networks will reach 100% carriage within two years, Hindery said.

In addition, Hindery promised that TCI systems will rejoin state cable associations. During the past year, many systems have cut their ties to state orgs in cost-cutting efforts. In some cases the withdrawal of TCI crippled the state orgs.

TCI employees also will be filling out applications for several industry orgs such as the Cable Television Marketing Assn. and Women in Cable. Hindery said TCI would double its membership in WIC during the next year and increase its membership in the National Assn. of Minorities in Cable by 500% in the next two years.

Hindery also promised the D.C. audience that TCI would target the city’s troubled TCI franchise in Washington. “It may take some structural, operating or ownership changes … but we will see that it does happen.”
