- Inaugural Class of Hightower Award Winners
Texas Radio & Television Broadcasters will celebrate the achievements of six extraordinary industry leaders at TAB’s Annual Awards Gala. The Gala, part of the TAB Show, is set for Wednesday, August 4 from 6:30-9:30 pm at the JW Marriott in Downtown Austin. “Texas broadcasting is nothing without the passionate and dedicated leadership of individual men and women who take to heart the federal license to do good for the communities they serve, and no one embodies that spirit greater than the six Radio and TV broadcasters we’re honoring this year,” said TAB President Oscar Rodriguez. “They are examples not just to others in the industry, but also to the communities they serve, and are among those who’ve dedicated their lives to this mission of service, as well as others who are still charting the course of their careers. “In every case, these honorees define the highest standards of leadership in our industry amidst an ever-evolving media marketplace wherein broadcasting remains unique in delivering important news, emergency information and entertainment while also powering local business growth. “It is an honor to recognize their exceptional accomplishments and contributions to the Lone Star State and I invite all Texas broadcasters to join us in celebrating with them Aug. 3-4 in Austin.” Pioneer Broadcaster of the Year – Mark Grubbs, Ranch Radio
