In February 2018, a woman who formerly served as VP and Director of Programming at the ABC owned-and-operated WPVI-6 in Philadelphia was chosen to serve as the Senior VP of Television for the NAB.
She later added Radio duties. Now, she’s gaining a seat on the Board of Directors of the Library of American Broadcasting (LAB).
Appointed to LAB is April Carty-Sipp, who joined NAB in March 2018 after more than 20 years in senior management at broadcast operations.
Carty-Sipp joined WPVI in 2013 after working for 12 years in the creative and marketing departments at Comcast/NBCUniversal, and was SVP/Creative Services and Brand Integration for NBC Regional Sports Networks upon her departure to WPVI.
Earlier in her career, Carty-Sipp worked in senior programming and promotions positions at Paramount Stations Group-owned WPSG-TV Philadelphia. Her first field-related job in television was working for the Philadelphia Phillies baseball club.
The Library of American Broadcasting is dedicated to the preservation and access of broadcasting’s history. Partnering with the University of Maryland Libraries, the LAB is the nation’s most extensive collection of broadcast history, policy and tradition, including historic documents, professional papers, oral and video histories, books, scripts and photographs.
