Nomination Deadline Approaching for MFM – BCCA’s “People to Watch” in 2018

     Northfield, IL, July 11, 2017 - The deadline is approaching for nominating media industry financial managers who should be considered "People to Watch" in 2018. Organized by MFM, The Media Financial Management Association, and its BCCA subsidiary, the media industry's credit association, the program recognizes emerging leaders whose contributions are helping to grow their companies and advance the profession's industry role.

     MFM welcomes all nominations for "People to Watch." Neither nominators nor those they recommend need to be members of MFM or BCCA. To ensure the most comprehensive list of industry financial professionals focused on change, the Association will also accept more than one nomination from a nominator.

     Nominees should:

  • Be a member of the media financial community, with a focus on: radio, broadcast TV, cable networks, multi-channel / telecommunications platforms, newspaper/print or digital media.
  • Have a mission or responsibility that suggests they will be instrumental in creating change within the media and financial industries over the next year.

     The deadline for "People to Watch" nominations has been extended to Friday, July 21. A nomination form is available on MFM's website.

"With more than half of the current year already in the rear-view mirror, we can already anticipate many of the developments that will be play a critical role in the success of media companies in the coming year, including the broadcast spectrum repack, advanced advertising, ATSC 3.0 and the market for augmented and virtual reality video programming," said Mary M. Collins, President & CEO of MFM and BCCA. "Our People to Watch program not only helps to recognize the industry's finance professionals, whose contributions often go uncelebrated, but to also provide a forum for peers looking to shape successful futures for their own organizations."

The 2018 honorees and their stories will be featured in the January-February 2018 issue of MFM's The Financial Manager (TFM) magazine.
