Sook Recognized With Golden Mike Award


The Broadcasters Foundation of America announced Monday that Perry A. Sook — Founder, Chairman, President, and Chief Executive Officer of Nexstar Media Group — will receive the 2019 Golden Mike Award on Wednesday, March 6, 2019, at the Plaza Hotel in New York City. The annual black-tie gala is a major fundraiser for the Broadcasters Foundation, the only charity devoted exclusively to helping broadcasters in acute need. Mr. Sook has over 38 years of professional experience in the television and radio broadcasting industries, covering all facets of the business

“There is no greater testament to broadcasters’ commitment to public service than in times of emergency. From hurricanes to wildfires, news teams across the country consistently brave extremely dangerous conditions to deliver lifesaving news coverage and information to local communities,” said Sook. “Many of us at Nexstar have experienced firsthand the devastating effects and extensive damage caused by severe weather and other unforeseen events. That is why we are proud to support the important work of the Broadcasters Foundation in providing both one-time emergency aid and ongoing monthly grants to help our colleagues most in need. I would like to thank Dan Mason and the Broadcasters Foundation for this prestigious Golden Mike Award and the more than 9,000 Nexstar employees who share in this great honor, for the work they do each day to make a positive difference in their local communities.”
