NAB is looking for a few good engineers — two, more specifically.
The trade group seeks nominations for its Engineering Achievement Awards. The award, established in 1959, recognizes an individual’s accomplishments and contributions to the broadcast industry. Separate awards are given for radio and television engineers.
John T. Wilner was the first honoree. Recent radio recipients include Tom Silliman, Louis King, Milford Smith and Glynn Walden.
Candidates are chosen on the basis of one significant contribution or several over a period of time that have advanced the state of the art of broadcast engineering. Categories include inventions, new techniques, dissemination of technical knowledge and literature and leadership in engineering matters.
The NAB Executive Committee will select winners; the awards will be presented at the Technology Luncheon at the NAB Show in April in Las Vegas.
