The NAB will honor ABC NEWS' BOB WOODRUFF with its Distinguished Service Award at the opening session of the 2016 NAB SHOW in LAS VEGAS on APRIL 18th.
“BOB WOODRUFF is a shining example of excellence in television news reporting,” said NAB Pres./CEO GORDON SMITH. “From AFGHANISTAN to IRAQ to NORTH KOREA, BOB has been on the front lines of the most important stories. The personal tragedy he has faced in pursuit of the news, in addition to his philanthropic efforts, make him more than qualified for NAB’s highest honor.”
DISNEY/ABC TELEVISION GROUP Pres. and DISNEY MEDIA NETWORKS Co-Chairman BEN SHERWOOD will deliver opening remarks and participate in a fireside chat with SMITH at the same session, where SMITH will also offer the annual “State of the Broadcast Industry” address.
