Editor’s Note: We’ll be featuring profiles of executives honored in our 2012 CableFAX 100 issue. We asked each of them to answer a few lighthearted questions and we've shared their responses below. Here is what Bill Abbott shared with us. Read the 2012 CableFAX 100 issue in its entirety here.



Bill Abbott

Early bird or night owl? Night owl

Disney World or Universal Studios Orlando? Disney World

My favorite business and/or motivational book: Success is a Choice by Rick Patino

My favorite iPad App: Wall Street Journal

My favorite vacation spot: Cape Cod

The one thing I tell my kids about success in life: Make smart decisions

The one thing I'd do differently if I could go back to high school: Recognize that it was just one moment in time

If I invented my own app it would… allow me to truly watch my TV anywhere!

Why isn’t TV Everywhere … everywhere yet?   Internet connections/Program rights

My famous last words will be: I’ve loved these days

When scientists from the future dig up a cable system from 2012, they will conclude that: It was a good try, but archaic.

The one topping that should never be put on a hot dog: Ketchup

Bands I would actually go see live: Rod Stewart, Billy Joel, Elton John

I'd give up my cell phone for a week if... I could trade the week for cell phone service in my neighborhood
