WASHINGTON, DC -- The National Association of Broadcasters today officially completed its merger with the Association for Maximum Service Television (MSTV), the trade association that worked with NAB to help shepherd through the successful digital television transition. The announcement came after NAB membership was solicited and overwhelmingly voted in favor of the merger.
As part of the merger, four of the five MSTV employees officially joined NAB this week, three of whom will be in the Science and Technology Department. These include Victor Tawil who joins NAB as a senior vice president and Bruce Franca as vice president. David Donovan, the former MSTV president, is joining the New York State Broadcasters Association as president and executive director.
The National Association of Broadcasters is the premier advocacy association for America's broadcasters. NAB advances radio and television interests in legislative, regulatory and public affairs. Through advocacy, education and innovation, NAB enables broadcasters to best serve their communities, strengthen their businesses and seize new opportunities in the digital age.
