B&C will award the one station or executive that has led the charge across platforms, including mobile TV, streaming and social media, as the 2016 Multiplatform Broadcaster of the Year.
For 2016 News Director of the Year, B&C is looking for a field general who, amid this fragmented media landscape, has “directed the troops to create comprehensive, timely content with the most relevance to their market.”
