The NAB EDUCATION FOUNDATION's (NABEF) 2014 Broadcast Leadership Training (BLT) class graduated this month, following a 10-month, MBA-style program that taught the fundamentals of purchasing, owning and operating radio and television stations. The program, now in its 14th year, targets senior level broadcast executives who aspire to advance as group executives or station owners.
Of the 238 past graduates, 43 currently own or have owned stations, and more than 96 have been promoted at least once. "The BLT program is a unique training opportunity that has helped to advance many careers," said NABEF Pres. MARCELLUS ALEXANDER. "With each year's graduating class, our industry benefits as the broadcast leadership bar is raised."
"The class of 2014 was another motivated, smart and creative group of experienced broadcasters that I know will go on to make their mark on our industry," SHOOTINGSTAR BROADCASTING Pres./CEO and BLT program dean DIANE SUTTER, said. "I look forward to tracking all of their continued success in the future."
