“The IABM North America Regional Council plays a vital role in helping shape the association’s vision for the future and gives IABM members in our region a voice,” said Hurt. “I’m honored to serve on the Council and look forward to working with the other members to help advise IABM — especially as it steers the broadcast and media industry through this period of so much dynamic change.”
