Neal Mohan, chief product officer for YouTube, will headline the NAB opening on Monday, April 9 at 9:00 a.m. at the Las Vegas Convention Center. Mohan will discuss how the intersection of content, hardware, and software is allowing media companies to reach more audiences in new ways. The opening event will also feature NAB President and CEO Gordon Smith’s “State of the Broadcast Industry” address and the presentation of the NAB Distinguished Service Award to Good Morning America co-host Robin Roberts. The event is sponsored by Blackmagic Design.
“We are thrilled to have Neal Mohan keynoting this year’s show. YouTube’s story is a perfect representation of the ‘M.E.T. Effect’ — the convergence of media, entertainment and technology,” said NAB Executive Vice President of Conventions and Business Operations Chris Brown.
