February 21-25 marked the annual gathering of broadcasters in the Nation's Capital. The National Alliance of State Broadcasters Associations kicked off the week with meetings discussing issues facing state associations. Tuesday saw an NAB-led agenda tackling many important issues relevant to our industry today. On Wednesday, the contingent from Nevada, including Mary Beth Sewald, Todd Brown, Tony Bonnici, and Lisa Howfield, along with Adam Sandler, met with Nevada's Congressional delegation about issues including the Spectrum Auction, Retransmission Consent, and more. On Thursday, the NAB held broadcasters Day at the FCC. Commissioners who addressed broadcast execs included Ajit Pai and Mike O'Rielly.
It was a busy but very productive trip. Our State Representatives have a strong grasp on the many challenges facing the Broadcasters of Nevada and the industry as a whole. It was a pleasure and an honor to represent all Nevada Broadcasters in Washington D.C.

During the open house some of the NVBF Scholarship students streamed live tv/radio coverage. Under the direction of Richard Gacovino, one of the NVBA’s strategic partners, our students teamed together in creating a memory that will last a lifetime.
