B&C is now accepting nominations for the local TV General Manager of the Year in three different categories:

GM of the Year: Markets 1-25
GM of the Year: Markets 26-50
GM of the Year: Markets 51+

The annual General Manager of the Year honors salute local station executives who have provided exemplary innovation, fearless leadership and flawless execution through this fascinating–and challenging–time in the television industry.

2013 Multiplatform Broadcaster of the Year
With newer challenges to face in mobile TV, the digital spectrum and the strong impetus to grow a station’s brand on Twitter, Facebook and other social media platforms, B&C will also honor the one station or executive that has led the charge into the brave new world of providing compelling content wherever, whenever and however consumers want it.

2013 News Director of the Year
Local news consumers want their news right away, whether they’re watching television, scanning the web at work, or staring at their smartphone. The challenge for station news directors has never been greater, with so many outlets competing for users’ attention. Who has best tapped social media to extend the station’s news reach, while also delivering compelling and vital information in traditional newscasts? B&C will highlight one local TV news exec who is coming up with innovative ways to serve viewers–and the bottom line.
