Two Suddenlink Initiatives Win Beacon Awards

Suddenlink’s Do Your Part, Drop by Drop water conservation program in Midland, Texas, and the YMCA-Suddenlink Corporate Cup Challenge fitness and fundraising event in Amarillo, Texas, have earned 2013 Beacon Awards.  The Beacons honor excellence in cable communications and public affairs.

Our Midland team’s program won in the Community Relations category for like-sized cable systems. The Amarillo team was named best in the Events and Observances category for like-sized cable systems.

Beacon Awards are presented by the Association of Cable Communicators (ACC). Winners were honored at the ACC’s annual conference this week in New York City.

Two Suddenlink Programs Earn Beacon Awards

The Association of Cable Communicators (ACC) recently announced the winners of the 2012 Beacon Awards.  The Beacons honor excellence in cable communications and public affairs. Among the winners are two Suddenlink-supported community outreach programs.

The Suddenlink Mid South Region received a Beacon Award for Community Relations for its partnership with Arkansas State University on the Johnny Cash Music Festival, held in Jonesboro, Ark.  The event featured performances by Cash’s friends and family members, and proceeds went toward the renovation and preservation of the late country music legend’s childhood home in Dyess, Ark.

The San Angelo cable system was recognized with a Beacon Award for Events and Observances for hosting the 2012 Suddenlink Open Tony Gibson Memorial Bass Tournament. The annual event kicks off the area’s bass fishing tournament season and proceeds benefit Hospice of San Angelo (HOSA). The tournament is named for Tony Gibson, a 2009 tournament winner.  The Gibson family received support from HOSA before Tony passed away in late 2009.

Suddenlink Initiative Wins Two Beacon Awards

Suddenlink’s “Connecting to Those in Need” food drive initiative captured two 2011 Beacon Awards, which honor excellence in cable communications and public affairs.

Our Alexandria, La., team’s program won in the Best of the Best Small System Communications Efforts category for like-sized cable systems. It also took the top prize in the Community Relations category, again among similar-sized cable systems. Since its inception in 2007, the initiative has collected tons of food contributions for the Food Bank of Central Louisiana.

Previously, the community service program won consecutive Top Operators Awards from CableFAX: The Magazine, a major industry trade publication.
