Just a few years shy of her golden anniversary with the National Association of broadcasters, the organization has announced that Diane Goff will retire on Feb. 29. Goff, who worked for the NAB for nearly 47 years, is believed to be the organization’s longest serving employee in history, serving for practically half of its 94-year history.

Starting in an administrative role on April 14, 1969, Goff worked her way up to bookkeeper and then eventually to her current position as NAB’s payroll and accounts payable manager.

“The NAB family salutes Diane for her dedication and years of service on behalf of America’s local broadcasters,” said Gordon Smith, NAB president and CEO. “We wish her many years of happy retirement.”

NAB honored Goff during a recent staff appreciation event.
