The Marconi Awards will be presented online
On Thursday, NAB announced that the presentation of the 2021 NAB Marconi Radio Awards and Gordon Smith’s final State of the Industry address as CEO of NAB will take place virtually on November 10, 2021 at 2:00 PM EST.
You can watch both events at NAB.org/watch.
The NAB Marconi Radio Awards honor radio stations and on-air personalities for excellence in broadcasting. NAB will name the winners in each of the 23 categories at the November event, which will be hosted by Angela Yee, co-host of the nationally broadcast morning show, “The Breakfast Club.”
Smith will reflect on his tenure as head of the association and how the broadcasting industry can continue to thrive in the future. “It has been a great honor for me to represent American broadcasters in Washington DC and around the world for the past 12 years,” said Smith, who will take on an advisory and advocacy role beginning next year. “While I’m disappointed we won’t be able to reunite in person in Las Vegas, I look forward to connecting virtually and seeing everyone in person at the 2022 NAB Show.”
