The National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) has established a new award intended to identify and honor the producers of outstanding programming specifically created for HD Radio multicast channels. The NAB HD Radio Multicast Award will be given to a multicast station that is judged tops in creating unique, innovative or groundbreaking programming airing on a multicast channel. The award will be presented at the keynote session on Sept. 27 during The NAB Radio Show in Charlotte, NC.
NAB Executive Vice President John David described the new award as a way for the industry to "recognize stations that make significant strides in utilizing HD Radio to enhance their local audience's listening experience."
Stations that wish to submit their entries online can do so through the NAB website beginning July 13. More information on the event is available form Chris Suever at firstname.lastname@example.org or 202-775-3511.
