Duke to Manage Broadcast Leadership Training Program

Michelle Duke, director of diversity services for the NAB Education Foundation, will manage the Broadcast Leadership Training Program. Duke replaces Heather Birks, who is now the executive director of the Broadcast Education Association.
Duke joined NABEF in January 2005. In her position, she has provided broadcasters with diversity strategies and resources to assist them with staffing, retention, and business practices. Duke oversees a diversity quarterly newsletter for broadcasters, a mentoring initiative, as well as fellowship programs and career outreach initiatives.
NABEF developed the BLT program in 2001 to promote diversity and upward mobility for women and minorities in broadcast management. The BLT Program targets senior level broadcast managers of proven ability who aspire to advance as group executives or station owners.
