WASHINGTON— A breakfast reception to recognize the 35th anniversary of the formation of the National Radio Systems Committee will take place Sept. 11 at the 2014 Radio Show in Indianapolis, Ind.
The NRSC was formed by the National Association of Broadcasters and the Consumer Electronics Association through its precursor organization the Electronic Industries Association. The organization held its first meeting in New York City in October 1979.
The breakfast reception recognizing this milestone will be held at 8 a.m. in room 110 of the Indianapolis Convention Center and is open to all Radio Show attendees. A brief ceremony will be held, during which the current NRSC chairman, Milford Smith, vice president of engineering with Greater Media, and others will offer remarks on the history and future of the NRSC.
The NRSC has become a focal point for the U.S. radio industry''s development of technical standards and the advancement of broadcast radio technology. NRSC Standards have been incorporated into the rules of the Federal Communications Commission and have guided the manufacture of radio receivers and broadcast transmission equipment. More recently, NRSC Guidelines documents have helped the broadcast industry manage the transition to digital radio and support new data broadcasting features.
