Congratulations are in order for one of our own! ATSC TG3 Chairman Dr. Richard Chernock will receive the 2016 NAB Television Engineering Achievement Award at this month’s NAB Show in Las Vegas.
Chernock will be honored at the NAB Technology Luncheon on Wednesday, April 20 in Las Vegas, along with Andrew Laird, former VP and CTO at Journal Broadcast Group, recipient of the 2016 NAB Radio Engineering Achievement Award, and Adam Symson, senior VP and chief digital officer at The E.W. Scripps Company, recipient of the 2016 NAB Digital Leadership Award.
Established in 1959, the Engineering Achievement Awards are given to individuals who are nominated by their peers for significant contributions to advancing the state of the art in broadcast engineering. The Digital Leadership Award was established in 2015 to honor an individual at a broadcast station, group or network who has had a significant role in transforming a traditional broadcast business to succeed on digital media platforms.
Honoring Chernock in 2016 is particularly timely considering this watershed year for ATSC 3.0, developed under his leadership. The list of past recipients of the NAB Television Engineering Award reads like an ATSC Who’s Who: Fox’s Richard Friedel, CBS’s Bob Seidel, Gates Air’s Jay Adrick, NBC Universal’s Glenn Reitmeier, Cox’s Sterling Davis and, as well as Merrill Weiss, Bernie Lechner, Mark Richer and many others.
