NAB Statement on Announced Retirement of CBS EVP Marty Franks


WASHINGTON, D.C. In response to today's announcement that Marty Franks, CBS Executive Vice President, Planning, Policy and Government Affairs, will retire effective September 30, the following statement can be attributed to NAB President and CEO Gordon Smith:

"If there was ever an unsung superstar in the broadcast business, it was Marty Franks. For a quarter of a century, Marty has personified professionalism at CBS. His wise Washington guidance helped broadcasters procure retransmission consent fees in the 1992 Cable Act; as Leslie Moonves's 'go-to guy' in New York, Marty has provided counsel and advice as solid as a Black Rock. The NAB family wishes Marty a long and active retirement."
