Gerald Dash, 68, Cable TV pioneer

From Multichannel News

Gerald Dash, whose long cable career began with early franchising efforts and selling HBO subscriptions, died on Aug. 30 at his home in Tucson, Ariz., of a terminal illness, family members said. He was 68.

Inducted into the Cable Television Pioneers in 2005, when he was a senior VP of training at RCH Cable Outsourcing Services, Dash began his cable career selling door to door. “That was the real key to me,” he recalled in 2005, adding: “There’s never been a dull day, even though sales people have never really been recognized.”
