There will be no Radio Show convention in Nashville in September, due to the coronavirus pandemic.
The National Association of Broadcasters and the Radio Advertising Bureau said they’ll produce a digital event instead.
Looking ahead, the organizations also announced locations and dates for their fall show for the next two years: Sept. 21–24, 2021, in New Orleans and Oct. 5–7, 2022, back in Nashville.
RAB President/CEO Erica Farber and NAB President/CEO Gordon Smith made the announcement in a letter to the industry.
“Just as you put your listeners’ interests first, your well-being is our top priority. With that in mind and considering the circumstances of the ongoing pandemic, we have decided not to move forward with the 2020 Radio Show in Nashville as previously scheduled for September 13–16. Instead, we will produce a digital event incorporating the best of what the Radio Show has to offer,” they wrote.
“Together with the Radio Show Steering Committee, we are committed to providing an alternative solution that will provide meaningful engagement, thought leadership, networking opportunities and insights to drive our industry forward.” Details are to be announced later.
