The NAB spring show opens Monday in Las Vegas. New trade association President/CEO David Rehr welcomed broadcasters at an event on Sunday evening, the NAB Broadcast Leadership dinner.
Rehr told attendees NAB will give them “the tools you need to arm yourselves” to compete, although “Being an election year, we expect some gridlock” on Capitol Hill.
He stressed the industry should be committed to electing members of Congress sympathetic to broadcasters. He thanked those broadcasters who donated to NAB’ Political Action Committee, and said “to those who don’t, you’ll hear from us soon.”
