An American Tower Leader To Receive Top TV Engineering Honor


For 61 years, individuals nominated by their peers for significant contributions to advancing broadcast engineering have been honored with the NAB Engineering Achievement Awards.

This year’s ceremony, like the rest of the 2020 NAB Show, is still on.

And, the 2020 NAB Television Engineering Achievement Award goes to the principal broadcast RF engineer for American Tower Corporation.

Getting the honor at the April 21 “We Are Broadcasters Celebration,” set for 3pm Pacific, is Jim Stenberg.

Stenberg serves as the subject matter expert on broadcast antenna systems on the company’s towers throughout the United States. He is the holder of nine patents and is responsible for numerous RF system product designs.

Stenberg has also co-written a handbook on digital television implementation and presented technical papers at numerous NAB, SBE, and IEEE conferences.

Prior to joining American Tower in 2013, Stenberg ran his own consulting and field service business for eight years and worked for several antenna and RF system manufacturers during his 33 years in broadcast.
