Bloomfield Is SBE Educator of the Year

Larry Bloomfield is SBE’s Educator of the Year.
Bloomfield, of Florence, Ore., publishes a technical online newsletter and conducts a road show that he calls “Taste of NAB.” In addition to TV and radio engineering experience, he has been an instructor at Southwestern College in Chula Vista, Calif., and at Guam Trade and Technical School; he taught future hams at the Oregon Central Coast Amateur Radio Club.
The SBE announced other awards this week. Among them: The Broadcast Engineer of the Year is Ted Szypulski, director of engineering special projects for ESPN in Bristol, Conn. He directed the design and construction of the ESPN “Digital Center,” a high-definition video facility that includes what is believed to be the largest HD/TDM router in the world.
The best regional convention honor went to Chapter 22, Central New York, and Conference Coordinator Tom C. McNicholl. The best chapter frequency coordination effort went to Chapter 54, Hampton Roads, Va., and Frequency Coordinator Ted Hand.
Chapters 125/Mississippi and 56/Tulsa were saluted for growth in membership. Chapters 133/Buffalo and 118/Montgomery, Ala., were honored for the highest member attendance.
Recipients will be recognized during the SBE National Awards Dinner in October in Dallas.
