“We are so pleased that Dave has agreed to take on this new and important role after supporting the Committee for many years," said Janet McHugh, executive sirector of the committee. "His knowledge of the local TV broadcast industry, financial acumen and experience in working with the Committee will be invaluable to our mission.”

Committee supporters include a laundry list of top TV station groups including Sinclair, Tribune, Tegna, Scripps, Meredith, Cox and the owned stations of ABC, CBS, Fox and NBC.
