NewBay Executive VP Carmel King said the changes in the company’s Broadcast & Video Group are a reflection of NewBay’s growth not only through acquisitions but through investment in its existing publications.
“Our European business is well established,” King said, through TV Technology Europe, Radio World International and Audio Media, supported by publishing bases in England and Italy. “We see more opportunity in the region and we are committed to building further here.”
