Rehr Resigns from NAB

National Association of Broadcasters president and CEO David K. Rehr announced his resignation from the trade group Wednesday. Rehr will remain with NAB during a transition phase and work closely with chief operating and financial officer Janet McGregor until a successor is named.

“I have enjoyed leading America’s broadcasters through this time of change and challenge,” Rehr said in a statement. “Our efforts to educate America about the digital-television transition have been enormously successful, and our effort to reinvigorate radio through the Radio Heard Here campaign is positioning radio broadcasters well for the future.”

He continued, “I am looking forward to building on these experiences and working with the broader Washington community to further advocacy efforts through marketing, communications and education.”
