BFA Begins Search for New President

Hastings Will Remain with Charitable Organization Until Successor is Named

The Broadcasters Foundation of America will start searching for a new president, chairman Philip J. Lombardo announced Thursday. Gordon Hastings, who has been president of the charitable organization for 13 years, will stay in the post until a successor is found, and will serve on the search committee, too. (Lombardo will head it.)

Hastings will re-establish a management firm he had in the early 1990s, and he will contract with the foundation to market many of its fund-raising efforts, including the Golden Mike Award and golf and fishing tournaments.

The BFA helps broadcasters, or former broadcasters, who have fallen on hard times and need economic aid.
