NYSBA Extends Donovan’s Contract Through 2020


The Executive Committee of the New York State Broadcasters Association has agreed to extend the contract of its President and Executive Director for three years.

David Donovan has held the leadership role for NYSBA since 2011. Prior to joining NYSBA, Donovan held various positions representing broadcasters in Washington, D.C., and served as the media counsel to the late FCC Commissioner James H. Quello.

“It has been an honor to represent radio and television stations throughout New York,” Donovan said. “I am grateful for the trust they have placed in me.  Broadcasters face many challenges in today’s hyper competitive marketplace.  NYSBA’s mission is to make sure they have the tools and the regulatory environment that will allow them to thrive and prosper so they may serve their communities.” 

Keeping Donovan at the helm of the NYSBA was greeted warmly by Galaxy Communications CEO Ed Levine. 

“He has been a very effective advocate for broadcasters, both in Albany and in Washington,” Levine said. “Broadcasting is confronting numerous challenges and he has the skills necessary to get the job done.”

The New York State Broadcasters Association represents more than 400 radio and television stations throughout the Empire State.
