Friday Deadline To Nominate Broadcast TV’s Best!


Who are the most powerful people in broadcast television?

The answer is totally up to you …  and you have until Friday, Jan. 25 to vote!


RBR+TVBR, the publication dedicated to the business of broadcast media, is proud to unveil the inaugural Broadcast Television’s Best Leaders list of the top individuals guiding over-the-air TV companies at a most exciting time for the industry.

The Next-Gen broadcast TV standard’s voluntary rollout is upon us. “Cord-cutting” has shown an increase in local TV consumption. Companies are investing millions of dollars in news delivery enhancements. Live sports still command the viewers and the audience.

While technology plays a key role in TV’s past, present and future, strong leadership brings revenue and ratings success. It is now time to acknowledge Broadcast Television’s Best Leaders. These individuals know how to motivate their local and regional teams to success. They are winning at sales, programming and management. They are relentless in what they do, and do not fail.

This inaugural list will comprise individuals who strive for long-term impact on the industry, and on those who have become mentees. They may not promote themselves, but have emerged as power players in an industry that’s far from fading.

Make your nomination today by clicking here for the RBR+TVBR 2019 Broadcast Television’s Best Leaders list. With NATPE Miami following the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., holiday, and the Matrix Solutions Symposium immediately following NATPE Miami — right after CES 2019 in Las Vegas — we have extended the nomination period per the advise of industry leaders.

“The first Broadcast Television’s Best Leaders list is testament to our commitment to covering the business of broadcast media – including the vibrant television industry and its dynamic leaders,” said Radio + Television Business Report EVP/Publisher Deborah Parenti. “By recognizing excellence in broadcast television, these honors pay tribute not only to some amazing and dedicated professionals in TV, but they serve to energize and encourage others to follow their footsteps. I am very pleased to be honoring these very special leaders.”

Readers may make up to three nominations by our deadline of Friday, January 25 at 5pm Eastern.


The Top 25 leaders in broadcast television will be revealed, based on your vote, in RBR+TVBR’s Spring 2019 Special Edition, distributed at the 2019 NAB Show in Las Vegas and via e-mail to all RBR+TVBR Members.
