NAB Boost for Sander?

April 9, 2007 12:00 AM

Former Belo Vice Chairman Jack Sander is the only person in the running to become the next chairman of the National Association of Broadcasters Joint Committee in June.

Unless someone mounts a last-minute campaign, which other NAB members say seems unlikely, Mr. Sander seems a shoo-in to succeed Bruce Reese, chairman-CEO of Salt Lake City-based Bonneville International.

The well-regarded Mr. Sander, long active in industry and affiliate organizations, retired as a full-time executive at the end of 2006 and became senior adviser at Belo after a 40-year career in the broadcasting business, the last decade with Belo.
