Next Generation of Broadcasters Get Special Focus at TAB Show

- Registration Fees Increase after June 22!

New entrants to the TV and Radio broadcast industry have a special opportunity to focus on advancing their careers in a subset of sessions planned for TAB’s Annual Convention Aug. 1-2 at the JW Marriott in Downtown Austin.

There’s no extra charge for these sessions and they’re among 33 programs and the 137-booth trade show open to all registrants for just $90, though rates increase after midnight June 22. The fee includes the Kick-Off Party on Aug. 1 featuring Austin’s own Mobley, who just released his new single “Young Adult Fiction”, as well as the Leadership Breakfast with NAB President/CEO Gordon Smith, lunch and a happy hour in the Exhibit Hall.

The Power of You – Promax CEO Kelly Wirges shares her inspiring and enlightening focus on the key aspects most related to an individual’s motivation to achieve success – personally and professionally – while learning key life skills.

Building Your Personal Brand – Led by Entercom Houston’s Sarah Frazier, the session features three more top-notch broadcast, non-profit and other business executives sharing the leadership techniques they employed to build their personal brands of professionalism and business success.

Finding Your Niche – Most successful broadcasters note they started in a totally different role at a station than the one they now enjoy the most. Radio One Dallas GM Tami Honesty joins Univision Media-Austin’s Christine Escobar and Bryan Broadcasting’s Tucker Young to shine a light on recognizing moments of career discovery and how to trust your judgment when making a professional move.

The Extra Mile – Glenn Morshower’s closing afternoon keynote introduces the importance of retaining a heightened percentage of playfulness and fun to elevate your level of joy and illumination in the world so you can continuously reframe your priorities and make you unstoppable.  One of the busiest character actors in Hollywood today, Morshower has appeared in more than 200 films and television shows over five decades.

Management, Sales, Technical Programs
A wide array of management, sales and technical sessions also are slated, beginning with a powerful and inspirational opening keynote Aug. 1 by broadcaster Derron Steenburgen.

Small market Radio broadcasters will see an extended focus on strategies for expanding their coverage of local high school sports to boost revenue and strengthen their ties with school districts.

From podcast publishing and all things IP, to navigating the Spectrum Repack and preparing for ATSC 3.0, engineers and technical teams will have a packed schedule when not meeting with vendors.

Awards Gala
The entire show closes Thursday night with the ticketed Annual Awards Gala featuring the presentation of TAB’s inaugural Distinguished Service Award, Educator of the Year Award, George Marti Award for Engineering Excellence, and Broadcaster and Pioneer of the Year awards.
