John David winds down.

The longtime NAB exec—first in Congressional relations, then in radio—will be transitioning from executive vice president of radio to senior advisor effective as of February 1. A former small market radio group owner, John has been with the NAB for 28 years, and has executive-produced the Marconi Awards Dinner and Show for 27 years. Said NAB President/CEO Gordon Smith, “John David has been an ambassador without peer for radio broadcasting, and we’re delighted he’s taking on new duties for NAB. Our affection for John is matched only by the value that he brings as a unifying voice for all radio broadcasters.”
