Pioneers of Cable Television : The Pennsylvania Founders of an Industry.


Pioneers of cable television; the Pennsylvania founders of an industry.

Lockman, Brian and Don Sarvey.

McFarland & Co.


221 pages




In 1948, the difficulty of getting a good television signal in Mahanoy, Pennsylvania was surmounted through the creation of a community antenna system that was the forerunner of today's cable industry. This volume presents biographical sketches of the business pioneers who brought this technology to mountainous rural Pennsylvania. A commemorative history of the Pennsylvania Cable Network (of which Lockman is CEO) is found in the appendix.
