Lone Star Broadcasters Gather in Austin

Largest state broadcaster convention set to go on Aug. 10–11

The Texas Association of Broadcasters will be gathering for its 63rd annual convention and trade show in Austin, Texas, later this week.

Here’s a quick preview of what Lone Star broadcasters can look forward to.

It is said that that TAB convention is the largest of the state broadcaster conventions and has an equally large exhibitor floor.

Interesting sessions for radio engineers will include Wayne Pecena talking about troubleshooting broadcast IP networks; two sessions from Fred Jacobs — one on media technology disruption and the other on auto audio and the connected car; Al Kenyon will have the latest on EAS/IPAWS; Womble Carlyle’s Gregg Skall will have a report on AM revitalization; and Lance Parr examines the increasing use of the cloud for broadcast services.

Other topics of interest include Paul Brenner speaking on, what else? NextRadio; many sessions on TV technology along with seminars on FCC/regulatory scene, sales, social media and human resources topics.

Along the way there will be a silent auction to support scholarships via the Texas Association of Broadcasters Educational Foundation; awards; parties/social events; and a golf tournament to kick things off.
