Michael S. Willner spent his entire career in the cable television industry. He co-founded Insight Communications in 1985 and served as its CEO, a director and vice chairman of the board until the company was sold to Time Warner Cable in February, 2012.

As a young boy in Miami, Florida, Michael had a fascination with the television business at a very early age. He often rode his bicycle to the local NBC affiliate after school where the staff allowed him to help out in the studio while they produced and aired a live children's puppet show and the local news. Michael began his career in 1974 as the program director and news reporter for a small suburban New York cable system after graduating from the Boston University College of Communications. Soon after, he shifted his focus to general management and eventually became the chief operating officer of Vision Cable Communications, a cable company owned by a division of Newhouse Newspapers.

After starting Insight Communications, Michael quickly developed his hands-on style of management as CEO. He is a firm believer in open, honest communication. He personally ensured that employees and customers were always well-informed and had input and influence over important Company decisions. This commitment led to a secondary career - that of a leading man in a number of Insight television commercials in which he comfortably played himself with a great sense of self-deprecating humor.

Michael also became very active in industry affairs and has been one of cable's most active and effective ambassadors on Capitol Hill, testifying regularly before Congress on industry issues and pending legislation. He has served two consecutive terms as chairman of the National Cable & Telecommunications Association (NCTA), the cable industry's trade lobby and currently served on its executive committee for many years. Michael also served as chairman of the board of the Cable Center from 2007 through 2011. He served on the executive committee of CableLabs; on the board of directors of C-SPAN, and the Walter Kaitz Foundation.

A recipient of the NCTA's 2004 Vanguard Award for Distinguished Leadership and a 2005 inductee into the Broadcasting & Cable Hall of Fame, Michael has yet to achieve his greatest goal of winning an Emmy for his leading role in Insight's commercials.

I satrted on Wellbutrin, next to Celexa, then it was Effexor, Then from there is was Cymbalta. When I first satrted on anti-depressants they felt like just what I needed. I felt good, I laughed a lot, I always was in a positive optimistic mood. Believe it or not it all satrted with just one pill Wellbutrin which was administered just after my coming clean off of street drugs and alcohol addiction. Currently I am on: hydroxiyzine, trazodone, clontidine, and Cymbalta. I feel like killing myself. ☹

I was going to say something slimiar to Matthew's answer.Is it possible that you would be having an anxiety attack over the meds? I would suggest seeing another doctor though.I had a terrible reaction to Xanex. It took me over 2 weeks to finally find a doctor that would listen to me and realize that my symptoms I was experiencing were very real to me. I had to seek out my own help though. My regular physician didn't help me at all. I would recommend that you see a nurse clinician or a psychiatrist right now. You don't need to feel this way.

Luis, He knew that you were going to lexapro vs paxil f1of1o that would say sontihemg thus. The real correlation was done using SPSS (that gave wonderful lexapro withdrawal symptom 0,44 of Pearson) Certain it is that I did not put the lexapro vs paxil ones that represents the relation. The graphic ones that I only put show to the qualifications (in sequence descendent) and the prices each of those qualifications. The graphic one only gives to a lexapro vs paxil idea of the not-relation between the prices and the qualifications. Greetings
