David Pogue, Yahoo! tech columnist, will speak at the ASCAP-sponsored NAB Show Radio Luncheon, April 8 in Las Vegas.
Pogue has expanded Yahoo!’s consumer technology coverage since beginning his column last fall. He is also a monthly columnist for Scientific American, an Emmy Award-winning correspondent for “CBS Sunday Morning” and host of “NOVA ScienceNow.” Prior to joining Yahoo!, Pogue wrote a weekly personal technology column for The New York Times for 13 years.
He covers topics ranging from the digital generation, mobile technology, disruptive technology, social media and why products fail.
Before launching his tech career, Pogue spent 10 years conducting and arranging Broadway musicals. He uses his musical and scientific knowledge to write and perform song parodies on the piano.
Pogue is also a best-selling author with over three million copies of his books in print. He wrote or co-wrote seven books in the “For Dummies” series, including volumes on Macs, magic, opera and classical music. His series, the “Missing Manual,” contains 120 titles related to computers.
The NAB Show Radio Luncheon will include the annual presentation of the NAB Crystal Radio Awards, which honor local radio stations for their year-round commitment to community service.
The highlight of the luncheon will be the induction of nationally-syndicated radio and TV personality Steve Harvey into the NAB Broadcasting Hall of Fame.
NAB Show will be held April 5–10 in Las Vegas.
