John Battison founded the Society of Broadcast Engineers in the early 1960s; now the SBE is honoring him in return.

The society announced at its spring membership meeting that the SBE Lifetime Achievement Award will be re-named the SBE John H. Battison Award for Lifetime Achievement.

Battison received that award in 2006; past recipients Terry Baun, Richard Burden, Richard Rudman, Morris Blum, Jim Wulliman, Ben Wolfe and Philo and Elma Farnsworth.

He also has been honored with NAB’s Radio Engineering Achievement Award.
