New York and Washington - Dec 16, 2009 - The Radio Advertising Bureau (RAB) and the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) have signed an expanded partnership of communications and events, including a combined Radio convention to be held Sept. 29 - Oct. 1, 2010, in Washington, DC. This extension of the relationship forged in 2007 entails a long-term program of communications and events for radio sales and representation in Washington to coincide with The Radio Show produced by RAB and NAB. More details on the fall convention will be forthcoming in early 2010.
"As part of the management structure of both the NAB and RAB, I've long felt there was tremendous value in bringing both organizations closer together," said Steve Newberry, NAB Joint Board Chairman and President and CEO Commonwealth Broadcasting Corporation. "This enhanced partnership is designed to positively address the needs of our radio station members and bring about proactive change for both of our trade associations."
In addition to a new and revised Radio Show, the NAB and the RAB will partner on programs such as the NAB Show in Las Vegas and other industry leadership events.
