Wisconsin Broadcasters Association

The WBA Winter Conference and State Legislative Day wrapped up Wednesday at the Madison Concourse Hotel.

The conference started on Tuesday with meetings of the WBA Board and WBA Foundation Board. 

In the afternoon, Patrick Cooney and Dustin Brown from Godfrey & Kahn talked about the legal issues that go along with social media and Jay Kruz from Mix 94.9 in Cincinnati talked about “The eight reasons you’re the future of media and one reason you might not be.”

The sessions wrapped up with a visit to Cooper’s Tavern on the Capitol Square.

The conference resumed Wednesday with a well-attended job fair with about 50 job seekers in attendance talking to Wisconsin radio and TV stations.

Stations then heard about advancing diversity during an EEO session from Godfrey and Khan attorneys.

The EEO session was followed by a business lunch where members learned about all the projects the WBA is working on and were introduced to The Toolbox, and exciting new event scheduled for June 22 in Milwaukee. They also welcomed Steve Wexler to the position of WBA Chair.

Broadcasters from across the state then went across the street to the State Capitol where they met with their lawmakers to talk about issues important to broadcasters and their mission of serving the public.

Thank you to all who came to Madison for this week’s events.
