Jody McCoy, Director of Media Services Group, was elected to serve a two-year term as President of the National Association of Media Brokers (NAMB) as the group met last week in Philadelphia. Elected vice president was Mark Jorgenson, the founding partner of Jorgenson Broadcast Brokerage.

The new secretary of NAMB is Roger Rafson, the owner of CMS Station Brokerage. Glenn Serafin of Serafin Bros. is the new treasurer.
