Recipients represent the highest ideals of the U.S. radio broadcast engineering profession and reflect those ideals through contributions to the industry. His selection had been announced late last year.
Garrison is vice president of technology operations, distribution and broadcast engineering for NPR. He also supervised the move of NPR’s technical operations last year to the organization’s new headquarters in the NoMa neighborhood of Washington, D.C., including its new 55,000-square-foot newsroom, new studios and technology and distribution centers that support programs such as “All Things Considered” and “Morning Edition.”
