Brian Cooley to Keynote NAB Show Technology Luncheon

Washington, DC -- CNET's Editor at Large Brian Cooley will deliver a keynote address at the NAB Show Technology Luncheon, sponsored by LG, on Wednesday, April 18 in Las Vegas. His presentation, "Top Ten Technology Countdown," will include insights into consumer technology trends and the opportunities they present for broadcasters.

"Brian's energy and deep knowledge of technology trends are always welcome at the NAB Show," said NAB Executive Vice President and Chief Technology Officer Kevin Gage. "Technology Luncheon attendees will come away with a better understanding of how digital media products are impacting businesses and consumers."

Cooley joined CNET in 1995, after 12 years of doing morning radio in L.A. and San Francisco. He soon launched CNET Radio Online, which led to the nation's first two all-tech format radio stations in San Francisco and Boston. A frequent guest on CNN, CNBC, CBS News, ABC News, MSNBC, as well as a long list of major market TV and radio stations, Cooley combines insights on consumers, innovators and the financial markets to produce compelling stories that audiences find both entertaining and informative. Cooley's focus on technology includes annual reviews of the 100 latest high tech cars and video coverage of the major world auto shows. Additionally, Cooley is known for his "Tips for Digital Living" series seen by millions of people from TV screens at Costco, Wal-Mart, Sam's Club and other retailers.

The NAB Technology Luncheon will also feature the presentation of the NAB Engineering Achievement Awards and the Technology Innovation Award. The Best Paper Award, established in 2010, will also be presented to the author(s) of a paper of exceptional merit published in the NAB Broadcast Engineering Conference Proceedings.
