Lucinda (Cindy) Hutter Cavell
Cavell Mertz & Associates, Inc.
Cindy has moved around a lot. She joined Cavell Mertz & Associates in 2010, after spending 15 years at NBC and ABC News (traveling with Presidents Reagan and GW Bush, three Olympic Games for three technical Emmy awards, and weird remotes to strange countries), a few years as a Chief Engineer at TV stations for Hearst, Gannett and Fox, a stint in Houston as GM of the Fox Sports Net technical playout center, and at Sprint as Director of Engineering for the 2GHz Relocation Project. Cindy works primarily with TV clients doing pre-purchase due-diligence (and post-purchase cleanup), workflow analysis, and TV station technical design/build. Cindy designed and project-managed the construction of a 670-mile, bi-directional, 38-hop microwave system which was built for a financial trading client. The firm still monitors the system for the client 2 years later. Cindy is currently the lead subject matter expert for the FCC’s Fund Administrator for the TV Band repack project.
