NCTAPAC Leader Eleanor Winter & CTO William Check to Retire

Christine Broadus Named NCTAPAC Successor in 2023

Washington, D.C. – Eleanor Winter, one of Washington, D.C.’s most effective political fundraisers and leader of NCTA – The Internet & Television Association’s Political Action Committee (PAC) for 34 years, has announced her plans to retire at the end of 2022.

During her tenure at NCTA, Winter transformed NCTA’s PAC from a modest organization into the top telecommunications PAC for over 20 years. Her leadership also included guiding member companies to become more active participants in the political system.

In addition to her PAC leadership, Winter has been a long-time industry mentor for young women and men through the WICT Network and was recognized with the industry’s top honor in 2015 when she was inducted into the Cable Television Hall of Fame.

Christine Broadus, a passionate industry advocate and proven leader in her 25-year tenure at NCTA, has been tapped to succeed Winter as leader of NCTA’s PAC and promoted to Vice President of Special Projects. During her time at NCTA, Broadus has played a significant role in the NCTAPAC’s success and will smoothly transition into this new role. She has a Bachelor of Arts from George Mason University.

“NCTA and the entire cable industry are grateful for Eleanor’s judicious advocacy and steely determination to ensure that we have an effective voice in Washington, D.C.,” said Michael Powell, President & CEO, NCTA – The Internet & Television Association. “I am one of five CEOs who has relied on Eleanor’s sharp wisdom and political acumen to guide us through some of the biggest public policy moments our industry has ever seen. The future of NCTA’s PAC is in excellent hands under the leadership of Christine Broadus and we look forward to her continued forceful advocacy on behalf of our industry.”

In addition to the NCTAPAC leadership transition, William Check, Senior Vice President, Technology and Chief Technology Officer, is retiring in mid-December. For the past 24 years, Check has guided the organization’s legislative and regulatory interests regarding technology policies, standards and guidelines. A search is being conducted for his replacement.
