The RAB’s executive committee has reinstated and activated several new committees, including committees focused on bylaws, nominating, finance, strategy, investment, events, network, multicultural, and the National Radio Talent System. The committees are overseen by the RAB board of directors with participation by RAB’s senior staff and are intended to help the organization manage its day-to-day business, while planning ahead for the future and benefit of the radio industry. 

RAB board chair Mike Hulvey announced RAB president and CEO Erica Farber and the RAB’s executive committee have agreed to a contract extension that will keep her in the position through April 2024. Farber joined RAB in January 2012 as EVP and became president and CEO in April 2012 where she oversees the organization’s advocacy efforts on behalf of the broadcast radio industry. 

At the meeting, Carolyn Fisher, partner, Southeast & Midwest Region, StateNets, officially joined the board of directors replacing Dave Martin. 

“We couldn’t be prouder of the accomplishments and progress RAB has made over the last two years,” said Mike Hulvey, chair, Radio Advertising Bureau, and vice president/chief operating officer, Neuhoff Media. “The executive committee wanted to be sure to position the trade association for strategic growth by engaging the entire board of directors in leading the path forward. We’re equally delighted Farber will be leading the charge and guiding the development and execution of the strategy set forth by the committees and board of directors.”
