Washington, D.C. -- In response to the announcement by Speaker Nancy Pelosi that she will not seek a leadership role in the 118th Congress, the following statement can be attributed to NAB President and CEO Curtis LeGeyt:
"NAB congratulates Speaker Pelosi on her historic tenure as the leader of the Democratic Party in the House of Representatives. As the first woman to serve as Speaker of the House, Speaker Pelosi stands as a monumental figure in American history, having made an indelible impact on our democracy through her dedicated service to her constituents, the people of California and to our nation. Local radio and television broadcasters from San Francisco to Washington, D.C. have appreciated the opportunity to cover her distinguished career and serve as an important source of information for her constituents. NAB thanks Speaker Pelosi for her leadership on critical broadcast policy issues, and we look forward to continuing to work with her and the 118th Congress to best serve the American public."
