The National Association of Black Owned Broadcasters and Interep’s Power of Urban Radio will host a session titled “Dialogue with the Advertising Industry” as part of NABOB’s Fall Broadcast Management Conference.
It’s at the Park Hyatt Hotel in Washington. The NABOB Fall Management Meeting will take place Sept. 24-26, during Congressional Black Caucus Week.
