Scope and Contents

This collection contains files from publisher Christopher Meigher regarding the cable television listings magazine TV-Cable Week (TVCW). Records include advertising and marketing plans, paste-ups of  Cablemonth, presentations, reports comparing TVCW to its competitors, staff lists, Meigher's notes, budgets and financial analyses, and interoffice correspondence. Of interest are two memoranda; one transmits consumer reactions and the other includes a list of TVCW development milestones. This memorandum is in the Post Mortem file and looks to have been created in preparation to discuss why the magazine failed.


Meigher transferred one box of binders to the archives. His other TVCW files were housed with disparate executive files. The arrangement retains the original groupings with the general office files in the front in alphabetical order and the materials from the binders next in alphabetical order.
