NAB is hard at work providing information and educational opportunities to our member stations, supporting broadcasters’ innovation and advocating for relief for stations impacted by the pandemic. In case you missed it, here’s another look at last week’s news.

PILOT

Broadcasters have always been creative in finding ways to connect to remote locations and to get the word out during challenging times, and the flexibility on display by the nation’s broadcasters during the COVID-19 outbreak has been nothing short of extraordinary. Broadcast engineers and technologists quickly crafted solutions to ensure that the public was protected, informed and, in the environment of social distancing, comforted. This current working environment has inspired the latest PILOT Innovation Challenge:
