WASHINGTON -- NAB President and CEO Gordon Smith announced today that  former NAB  Joint Board Chairman Steve Newberry has joined the NAB as Executive Vice President for Strategic Planning/Special Projects.  
Newberry, 55, has been a Washington-based communications consultant since 2015. He served as chairman of NAB's Joint Board of Directors from 2009 to 2011. He is the President and CEO of Glasgow, KY-based Commonwealth Broadcasting.  
"Steve Newberry is a broadcaster's broadcaster, and he has been a remarkable advocate for our great business in his home state of Kentucky and in the halls of Congress," said Smith. "For nearly 20 years, Steve has been at the center of most of the major policy discussions that impact free and local broadcasting, both as an owner and as an NAB Board member. He will be a tremendous asset to NAB and our member stations as a full-time NAB employee."
As EVP for Strategic Planning/Special Projects, Newberry will focus on multiple NAB initiatives, including the construction of a new NAB headquarters in the Capitol Riverfront section of Washington. The planned relocation of NAB from its Dupont Circle location was the culmination of a rigorous search for a location with easy access to Capitol Hill that will allow NAB to improve its advocacy efforts. NAB expects to move into the new building in 2019.
Newberry began his broadcasting career at the age of 14 and became a station owner at the age of 21. Besides serving as NAB Joint Board chair and Radio Board chair, he served a stint as president of the Kentucky Broadcasters Association. Newberry has also been active in public broadcasting, having served for six years as a member of the national board of trustees of America's Public Television Stations and five years as chairman of the Authority for Kentucky Educational Television. Newberry has testified on Capitol Hill on behalf of NAB on multiple occasions.

Speed Marriott - Owner / CEO, P1 Learning
Speed Marriott began his career in broadcasting over 30 years ago as a copywriter. He quickly discovered that copywriters drove cars from the previous decade, while account executives drove cars from the current decade. Based on this revelation the move was made to sales and he has never looked back.

Speed has worked for broadcast companies such as Shamrock Broadcasting (Disney), South Central Communications, and Entercom Communications. In 2000 Speed joined forces with Advantage Systems and in 2007 Speed partnered with broadcaster Katey Woolam to found the online training company, P1 Learning. Today P1 Learning caters to thousands of traditional broadcast stations and media based companies on an international basis.

How to Out-Prospect Old Prospectors & How to Control Automatic Thoughts

Two big subjects in one dynamic webcast. With the demise of Yellow Pages and newspaper advertising, product/service categories previously unavailable to broadcasters are now wide-open. In this information-packed session, Paul Weyland shows you how to prospect new local direct business in ways you haven't thought about before. During Q&A, be prepared to bring up product/service categories you are considering calling on and Paul will help you come up with ideas to pitch these new clients.
Then, Paul uncovers a dark and scary secret (Automatic Thoughts) that may be hampering your ability to reach your full potential, both as a sales person and as a human being.
Presented by Paul Weyland, LBS Broadcast Expert

This Week's 3 Videos: Digital Q&A, Objections, Excellence Series!
Digital Q&A:  LBS Digital Expert, Steve Weaver answers LIVE broadcaster questions! In this segment, he covers:
▪ Our manager prefers that we sell the entire budget into broadcast and only sell digital if they won't consider a 100% broadcast buy. What are the dangers of this type of strategy?
▪ How do we counter-sell a client's digital campaign?
▪ What are the best ways to explain retargeting, display, and mobile delivery to potential clients?
▪ How do I critique an advertiser's or prospect's website without hurting their feelings?
Objections: Eric Moore brings us the three categories that 80% of all sales objections fall into and helps you prepare to have ready responses for them.
Excellence Series!: In this series, Gary Moore discusses helping potential advertisers develop a fuller understanding of the importance of advertising.
Happy Selling!
