NAB General Counsel and EVP/Legal Affairs JANE MAGO has announced her retirement after 10 years at the organization and 26 years before that at the FCC. MAGO will remain as a consultant through the end of 2015; EVP/Strategic Planning RICK KAPLAN will succeed MAGO to head the NAB's Legal Department.
MAGO, who will move to NAPLES, FL from WASHINGTON, said, "It has been an honor and a privilege to work for and with the broadcast industry through many challenging times. The work that broadcasters do every day makes a real and positive difference in communities across AMERICA, and I'm proud to have been associated with this great profession."
NAB Pres./CEO GORDON SMITH said that MAGO is "a remarkable advocate for NAB and one of the classiest people in our business. JANE's integrity is unquestioned, and her bridge-building style has been a huge asset for broadcasters in WASHINGTON. I speak for the entire NAB staff, the communications bar association and the NAB Board in saying that JANE MAGO has served all broadcasters with distinction."
