Letter from the Editor

By the time you read this, our 2015 dues notices will be in the mail to your station courtesy of the good ol’ U.S. Postal Service.  In the last four or five years the NHAB Board of Directors and staff have worked to make your membership be, as National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation’s Cousin Eddie would say, “the gift that keeps on giving the whole year.”

We’ve added several programs that anyone at your station can use, like the Continuing Education Reimbursement Program and Families in Broadcasting Scholarships.  We’ve also added benefits and streamlined programs to make your whole station or cluster stronger.  With that being said, we haven’t cornered the market on membership benefit ideas.  If you’re talking to a colleague in another state or have a great idea of how the NHAB can better serve you, please let us know! 
I can be reached by email at or by phone at 603-627-9600.  On behalf of the Board of Directors, new NHAB Member Coordinator Brittany Debelis and myself, I wish you a healthy and happy Holiday season.

Legislative success for broadcasters but a long road ahead

NHAB visits Upper Valley with National Guard
Earlier this month, NHAB Executive Director Jordan Walton visited three station groups in the Upper Valley with New Hampshire Army National Guard's Marketing NCO Staff Sergeant Carolina Compton and local recruiter SSG Patrick McGinnis. The group visited Koor Communications News/Talk WNTK, the Great Eastern Radio cluster which includes Q106, Kixx 100.5 and Kool 93.9 and Dartmouth’s 99 Rock WFRD.

2015 is the year of ‘localism’
Never in human history have there been so many choices for entertainment. 

The answer to broadcast radio and television’s viability into the future is well known.  Localism.  The ability to talk about an accident that has closed down I-89, school closures, high school sports broadcasts or a weekend public affairs program.  It’s what makes us unique.  In 2015 the NHAB is going to make sure that Congress knows how vital we are to consumers.
