Lawo, the German-based designer and manufacturer of audio and video technology for broadcast and post production, appointed Bill Bennett to represent its line of radio products in the United States.

According to an announcement, Bennett is well-known to United States broadcasters from his previous position as a sales and support engineer for L-S-B Broadcast Technologies, now Lawo, where he worked with IP-based network, audio, video and control products and services.

“It feels really good to come home to radio,” said Bennett. “Where it all began for me was in engineering at WJR Radio in Detroit, back in the mid-’80s, and radio is where my heart is.”

Based in the Pittsburgh area, Bennett’s focus on radio will require him to travel extensively introducing broadcasters in the United States to Lawo’s line of German-built radio mixing consoles, stated the announcement.
