Shawn Smith Awarded - BCAB Friend of the Industry Award

“I began reading BD as an all-night on-air personality, intercepting the fax as it rolled across the machine at 3 o’clock in the morning. It opened a world of distant markets, legendary stations, and movements of key personalities. Before the internet, BD connected us all, and in short order became a trusted voice for the industry,” says Smith. “Broadcasting has always been a cornerstone of our business at Momentum, as has been working with vendors to the industry, so we were naturally-positioned to take BD into its digital future.”

To meet the changing definition of what broadcasting is, under Smith’s leadership the publication has evolved to expand its coverage to digital media, podcasting and streaming, in addition to TV, film, radio and telecom news.

The Weekly Briefing, a comprehensive overview of the week in Canadian broadcasting, is sent out FREE to subscribers by controlled e-mail circulation every Thursday.
