In 2020, for the first time, the Radio + Television Business Report offered readers the opportunity to submit their nominations and vote for the individuals who have demonstrated leadership excellence at the local level — serving as the stewards of sales and on-air operations that deserve national recognition.
Now, RBR+TVBR is pleased to accept your nomination for the Top Local Leaders of 2021. There's limited time for your vote, however.Nominations must be received by Friday, August 20. What will this year's Local TV Leaders list look like? We guarantee that there'll be a new No. 1, as last year's top-ranked honoree now has a network-level post at The Walt Disney Company: Debra OConnell.
From delivering insight and information of vital interest to the community to entertaining consumers of all ages, local television remains integral to American society today. It's the local TV leader that oversees it all. Honoring their dedication and commitment to excellence is our honor.
From your nominations, along with research and editorial evaluation, a final Top 15 listing of broadcast television's local leaders will be revealed — and it will appear exclusively in RBR+TVBR’s Fall 2021 Special Edition. It's our BIGGEST issue ever, with distribution at the virtual TVB Forward 2021 on September 30 and at the co-located NAB Show and Radio Show in Las Vegas. An electronic version of the RBR+TVBR Fall 2021 Special Edition will be distributed via e-mail to all RBR+TVBR Members.
