Gordon Smith: “Courage”

During his keynote remarks at the Radio show last week, NAB President/CEO Gordon Smith said, “When I think about radio, the word ‘courage’ comes to mind.” As an example, he cited our reporting during Hurricane Isaac, and used that event as a springboard into discussing the industry’s efforts to make sure that FM chips are part of every cell phone manufactured. “When phone service and the Internet goes down,” Smith said, “radio stays on … radio is still there.”
