The National Association for Multi-ethnicity in Communications (NAMIC) announced plans to collaborate with NewBay Media in support of the 2013 NAMIC Vision Awards as well as, the newly-introduced Multiethnic TV Leadership Awards presented by two NewBay Media publications, Broadcasting & Cable and Multichannel News.
The Multiethnic TV Leadership Awards will honor nine individual business executives in a celebration of the growing viability of the multiethnic television business. The awards will be presented at a luncheon ceremony at the NY Hilton Hotel on Wednesday, April 17, 2013. The awards luncheon will be preceded by a morning program which will feature one-on-one interviews with keynote guests, panel discussion with business leaders and a special presentation by NAMIC.
As a scheduled segment within the morning program agenda, NAMIC will have the unique opportunity to stage the first-ever, live announcements of the Vision Awards nominees. Featuring celebrity presenters, the live announcement will highlight the top award categories.
In a joint statement, Dr. Nicol Turner-Lee, president and CEO, NAMIC and Louis Hillelson, vice president and group publisher, Broadcasting & Cable and Multichannel News commented: “We are excited to expand upon the longstanding partnership between NAMIC and B&C/Multichannel News to recognize the industry’s achievements in furthering the business of multiethnic television.” The statement continued, “This is truly an ideal collaboration for the two organizations. The Multiethnic TV Leadership Awards acknowledge the business executives of the industry while the NAMIC Vision Awards salute the creative aspect of the business.”
