NAB2007 To Feature Public Service Pavilion

WASHINGTON, DC - NAB2007 will feature The Public Service Pavilion, providing broadcasters with access to over 15 national nonprofit organizations to help promote the public service programs of local radio and television stations across the country. The Pavilion will be located in the North Hall.

A recent survey conducted by NAB shows that broadcasters remain one of the nation's largest public service providers, voluntarily generating $10.3 billion in community service in 2005. The Pavilion serves to enhance broadcasters' commitment to serve the public good by providing access to free public service materials that will assist stations in the development and implementation of locally focused community service initiatives.

As a venue for distribution of public services announcements, programming ideas and resource guides, the Public Service Pavilion will enhance broadcasters' ability to reach citizens in their local communities with issues that address national social concerns.

This year's participants include:

The Advertising Council

Federal Student Aid

Alliance to Save Energy

March of Dimes

American Cancer Society

National Center for Missing & Exploited Children

American Diabetes Association

National Crime Prevention Council

American Heart Association
