This year’s recipient of the National Radio Award is Charles Warfield, President and COO of ICBC Broadcast Holdings, a privately held company better known to most people in radio as Inner City Broadcasting. He will receive the prestigious award during the Radio Show Luncheon held Friday, October 1, the final day of the 2010 Radio Show in Washington, DC.
Warfield began his 32-year career in radio at Inner City and is back there now, but there were other stops along the way. In a recent interview with RBR-TVBR Executive Editor Jack Messmer, Warfield talked about the people who influenced his career and the battle by Urban radio to achieve parity with general market stations in ad buys.
He also discussed some of the hot topics today: Arbitron’s PPM and the battle over the Performance rights Act. After all, he is the immediate past Chairman of the NAB Radio Board.
