Washington, DC - Oct 13, 2008 - Janet McGregor will join the National Association of Broadcasters on Nov. 3 as chief operating and financial officer. McGregor will oversee the financial operations and investments for the advocacy group, and will also be responsible for several NAB departments: Conventions and Business Operations, Science and Technology, Information Technology and Administration. She will also assist in helping the Television and Radio departments grow membership.
