Digital Radio Mondiale Chairman Peter Senger received the inaugural lifetime achievement award from the European broadcast Union. Radio Netherlands Director General Lodewijk Bouwens presented the honor at the International Broadcasting Convention, where Senger was presenting a presentation on digital broadcasting. Senger has led the DRM consortium since its inception in 1998, and has been executive director of marketing, distribution and technology at Deutsche Welle since 2002. Senger started his Deutsche Welle career in 1965, after completing his studies in Broadcast Engineering in Berlin.
"Peter Senger is a traveling ambassador for the industry, ensuring that technology in our sector maintains relevant and cutting edge," said Bouwens, who is also chairman of the EBU's International Radio Group. "He has represented the interests of not only his own station, but of his broadcasting colleagues across the continent. We believe Peter's outstanding lifetime devotion to this business should be recognized, celebrated and applauded."
The DRM consortium has 83 members representing 29 countries.
