Three weeks into his new job, National Association of Broadcasters President Curtis LeGeyt met with members Thursday in a virtual town hall. The closed-door event allowed LeGeyt to offer an outline of where he plans to take the NAB, including the Washington fights he is most focused on in his first months leading the trade group.
The press was not allowed to listen in, but in a summary of the event provided by the NAB, it said LeGeyt told broadcasters that his biggest focus will be “winning policy fights” that “ensure a broadcast business that can thrive in today’s media landscape.” He is also focused on what the NAB says are “business-oriented” initiatives. And LeGeyt said he will dedicate time to breathing new life into the NAB Show, which was cancelled in both 2020 and 2021 because of the coronavirus pandemic.
During the event, LeGeyt also called on NAB members to continue their hometown lobbying efforts which have in the past proven successful at swaying members of Congress on both sides of the aisle.
