John David receives National Radio Award.

The longtime NAB VP/Radio is slated to receive one of the industry’s highest honors at the NAB/RAB Radio Show in Orlando this Fall. NAB president/CEO Gordon Smith calls Mr. David “the consummate radio broadcaster” and asserts, “The entire broadcast radio community has benefited enormously over the years from John David’s dedication, knowledge, and his one-of-a-kind sense of humor.” Editor’s $0.02: nobody, ever, has done more for radio than John David. Most of his efforts have gone unnoticed, but he services occasionally, in some hosting duty or another, where his hilarious outlook is on full, if rare, display.
