Affiliates set Vegas powwows


The NAB announced that the affiliate boards of directors for ABC, CBS, NBC and Fox will all hold meetings in Las Vegas during the April 10-15 NAB Show in 2009. The full Fox affiliate association will also meet in Vegas.

The 2010 NAB Show marks the third consecutive year that Fox affiliates have held meetings in conjunction with the NAB Show.

“The NAB Show is always the preeminent annual gathering for broadcasters,” said Brian Brady, President and CEO of Northwest Broadcasting and chairman of the Fox affiliate board. “It provides an unparalleled opportunity for FOX affiliates to discuss business opportunities while exposing local TV station operators to the latest technologies shaping the media industry,” he said in the announcement from NAB.
“Today’s announcement brings a group of high-level decision-making executives to the NAB Show, which is welcome news to the expected 1,500-plus exhibiting companies showcasing new technology. We look forward to once again welcoming these influential groups to our show,” said NAB Executive Vice President of Conventions and Business Operations Chris Brown.
