How-to pow wow

Shooting Star Broadcasting President Diane Sutter chats with Richard Dyer of WUSA-TV Washington during a break in the first session of the Broadcast Leadership Training Program at the NAB headquarters in Washington over the Sept. 8-9 weekend. Under the aegis of the NAB Education Foundation, the fellowship program aims to teach women and minorities how to acquire and operate TV and radio stations. The first group of 14 fellows will meet once a month for nine more months. Sutter has been the driving force behind the initiative. The opening session featured a speech by Assistant Secretary of Commerce Greg Rohde, who has pushed for more minorities and women in the station-ownership ranks.
