CPB's Curren among international broadcasting heads speaking at IBC
CPB Chief Operating Officer Vinnie Curren joined BBC Trust Chairman Michael Lyons, European Broadcasting Union Director General Ingrid Deltenre and NHK Japan Vice President Yoshinori Imai for a keynote session Wednesday (Sept. 8) to open the huge annual IBC media confab in Amsterdam. Indian Television reports that Curren spoke on the importance of localism to public service broadcasters, and cited Wisconsin Public Television's LZ Lambeau (Current, June 7, 2010) as one good example. The IBC calls itself "the premier annual event for professionals engaged in the creation, management and delivery of entertainment and news content worldwide." More than 45,000 participants from 140 countries attended last year's meeting. It runs through Sept. 14.
