NAB wins one back.
Calling the two years away from NAB a “hiatus,” Disney/ABC has announced it will rejoin the association. Even though the dispute concerned the national TV ownership cap, ABC pulled its 70 radio stations, in addition to its network and 10 TV stations, out of membership.
The broadcaster issued a statement quoting Disney Executive Vice President/Worldwide Government Relations Preston Padden saying, “ABC believes that the best interests of our industry, our company and ultimately the viewing public can be promoted by returning to the NAB at this time. With policy differences now behind us, ABC and NAB are once again in a position to work together towards our important common goals.”
Padden now gets a seat on the NAB board.
