NAB Leadership Foundation Launches Future Leaders Fund

Fundraising campaign will support programs for next generation of broadcasters

Tamron Hall announces giving campaign in video message

Washington, D.C. – The National Association of Broadcasters Leadership Foundation (NABLF) today launched The Future Leaders Fund, a new fundraising campaign in support of the foundation’s mission to create a more diverse, innovative and vibrant workforce. NABLF board member and broadcast ambassador Tamron Hall kicked off the campaign with a video message encouraging broadcasters to donate to The Future Leaders Fund this holiday season.

The Future Leaders Fund will help advance NABLF’s mission by supporting groundbreaking initiatives that seek to increase diversity in broadcasting and train the next generation of industry leaders. Programs such as the Media Sales Academy, Technology Apprenticeship Program, Broadcast Leadership Training Program and the new Emerson Coleman Fellowship impart skills, mentorship and resources to broadcasters from diverse backgrounds at all stages of their careers.

“For 25 years, NABLF has been dedicated to strengthening our industry’s ranks by offering a steppingstone for broadcasters to succeed and thrive, from students and employees just starting in their careers to executives with aspirations of station ownership,” said NAB Leadership Foundation President Michelle Duke. “We thank Tamron Hall for kicking off The Future Leaders Fund that will help turn countless dreams into reality with the generous support of our donors.”

“NABLF is a tremendous resource for broadcast companies, which benefit from the educational opportunities and experiences the foundation provides to our employees, potential hires and up-and-coming executives,” said Bonneville International President Darrell Brown, chair of the NABLF Board of Directors. “I urge my fellow broadcasters to show their appreciation for the foundation’s years of service by supporting NABLF’s landmark programs that propel our industry forward.”

In addition to innovative programming, NABLF presents the annual Celebration of Service to America Awards, which honor television and radio stations for their commitment to public service.

Tax-deductible donations may be made here.
