Former MPAA chief will address the April 24 All-Industry Luncheon on the First Amendment.
Former Motion Picture Association of America President & CEO Jack Valenti will speak at the NAB Television All-Industry Luncheon on Monday, April 24, during NAB2006 in Las Vegas.
Valenti, a legendary lobbyist responsible for creating both the movie and television rating systems, will discuss the role of the First Amendment in a free society. He will also provide a status report on a multi-industry effort by broadcasters, cable operators, satellite television providers and television set manufacturers to educate parents on easily usable tools to screen out programs deemed inappropriate for children.
After serving as head of MPAA for 38 years, Valenti stepped down in September 2004 and is currently senior consultant to the MPAA.
