Mitch Fox to Assume Duties February 12, 2018
Viola Cody, SVP of Integrated Marketing Solutions for Entravision Reno TV & Radio, and Chairman of the Nevada Broadcasters Association announced today that long-time Nevada broadcaster Mitch Fox has been selected as the next President and CEO of the Nevada Broadcasters Association. Fox succeeds Mary Beth Sewald, who left the organization to become President and CEO of the Las Vegas Metro Chamber of Commerce.
Fox was selected after an extensive, nationwide search. He brings more than 30 years of broadcasting experience to the position including his first job at KABC-TV in Los Angeles, at KTNV-TV in Las Vegas as a general assignment reporter and as director of production and programming for Vegas PBS. He is most well-known as a debate moderator, legislative/political reporter and host of “Nevada Week in Review.”
Fox was also communications director for the City of North Las Vegas and Nevada State Director for the Porter Group, a Washington DC-based lobbying firm. In that role Fox represented the Nevada Broadcasters Association at the Nevada State Legislature and before members of Congress.
“We’re thrilled to have Mitch on board as our new President,” said Ms. Cody. “His extensive broadcasting and government affairs experience combined with his knowledge and credibility throughout the state comes at a great time for our organization. We appreciate his passionate advocacy for broadcasters and broadcasting issues and we look forward to his leadership.”
“I’m honored to be selected as the next President of the Nevada Broadcasters Association,” said Fox. Former President Mary Beth Sewald, and the NVBA Board have positioned the organization as one of the most respected broadcasting associations in the country. I look forward to working with NVBA staff members and board members to build upon that success, and to raise the visibility and increase the influence of broadcasters throughout Nevada.”
