Category: NAB
WASHINGTON, D.C. – The National Association of Broadcasters have announced that top government officials will address public policy issues related to media, entertainment and technology at NAB Show, to be held April 6-11, 2013 in Las Vegas. U.S. Representative Greg Walden, chairman of the Communications and Technology Subcommittee of the House Committee on Energy and Commerce, will discuss his career in broadcasting and legislative issues affecting the industry as one of the speakers at the NAB Show opening session on Monday, April 8.

Walden has represented Oregon's Second Congressional District since 1998. He also spent more than two decades as a radio station owner and is a licensed amateur radio operator (W7EQI). He uses his small business and technology experience as chairman of the Energy and Commerce Committee's Subcommittee on Communications and Technology. In November 2012, Walden's House Republican colleagues unanimously elected him to serve as chairman of the National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC).

"NAB Show is a great opportunity to hear directly from government officials, regulators and policymakers, and to get up to speed on important public policy issues facing the industry today," said Dennis Wharton, NAB executive vice president of Communications. "You cannot underestimate the implications of legislative and regulatory initiatives in Washington."

Session topics include FCC implementation of television spectrum incentive auctions, retransmission consent, media ownership rules and content streaming regulations.
