All Fox, CW affiliates to gather, along with affiliate boards of directors of ABC, CBS, NBC and Fox.
The National Association of Broadcasters announced today that Fox Television and the CW Network will host meetings with their affiliated television station representatives at the NAB Show in Las Vegas. Also, the affiliate boards of directors of ABC, CBS, NBC and Fox Television will once again hold meetings during the NAB Show. This year’s gathering is set for April 14-19.
The 2012 NAB Show marks the fifth consecutive year that the Fox affiliates will meet in conjunction with the NAB Show and the second year for CW affiliates. The ABC, CBS, Fox and NBC affiliate boards met at the NAB Show in 2009, 2010 and 2011.
“Having our CBS Television Network Affiliate Association Board meeting in conjunction with the NAB Show makes it one of the more productive meetings of the year on many levels,” said Wayne Daugherty, Raycom Media’s chief operating officer and chairman of the CBS affiliate board. “Year-after-year, the NAB Show is a fertile environment for broadcast executives, engineers, news personnel and management. It provides a one-stop-shop to learn about technology, policy and business solutions that are revolutionizing our business.”
“At NAB Show, executives take advantage of the opportunity to meet and explore the broadcast industry’s latest technological innovations at the world’s largest electronic media event,” said NAB Executive VP of Conventions and Business Operations Chris Brown. “We look forward to hosting successful network affiliate meetings again at this year’s show.”
