A key voice at putting the views of Christian broadcasters in front of federal lawmakers and regulators is changing jobs.
Bob Powers is leaving the National Religious Broadcasters after almost 10 years, most recently as its VP of government relations. He was the first person to work full-time as a lobbyist for NRB on Capitol Hill.
An NRB official told Radio World that a replacement will be announced soon.
Powers moves to Aduston Consulting, which provides congressional lobbying and other consulting services. NRB said he would “continue to work on broadcast and telecom, along with issues related to a free market economy.”
He started in NRB’s communications department.
Association President/CEO Dr. Frank Wright stated, “We appreciate Bob’s devotion to keeping the airwaves open for the proclamation of the Gospel of Christ, and we wish him well as he follows a new turn in God’s calling on his life.”
