Who is FierceTelecom's Person of the Year?



Who is FierceTelecom's Person of the Year for 2007? I'll tell you on Friday, but it's one of the five people listed below:

1) Former Qwest CEO Joe Nacchio

2) AT&T CEO Randall Stephenson

3) Cisco Systems CEO John Chambers

4) FCC Chairman Kevin Martin

5) Time Warner Telecom CEO Larissa Herda

In considering these choices, I'm looking at overall industry influence, impact on specific companies or issues, and incidents both positive and negative.

Yes, I know I just did a little bait-and-switch by making you think I was ready to make my choice today, but I do need to give all of you a reason to tune in this Friday as you get ready for a long holiday weekend. So, check back Friday to see my choice, and send me an e-mail to let me know your pick, too. - Dan
