NAB to provide disaster recovery services to members
WASHINGTON, DC — The National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) announced today a new member benefit program with Agility Recovery Solutions that provides NAB members with the services they need to ensure that radio and television stations continue to broadcast to their communities during life-threatening situations. The latest member benefit offered by NAB, the Agility Recovery partnership will enable broadcasters to recover from virtually any type of disaster or interruption.
“In times of crisis, broadcasters serve as a critical lifeline for the public by keeping communities alert and informed,” said NAB Executive Vice President of Communications Dennis Wharton. “Partnering with Agility Recovery Solutions helps to ensure that our member stations have the tools they need to keep their radio and television stations up and running when the public needs them the most.”
“Broadcasters strive to provide quality content to their audiences, but a disaster can leave these radio and television stations powerless to communicate with their communities and promote their advertisers,” said Agility Recovery Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Bob Boyd. “Agility Recovery believes all businesses – regardless of size or industry – should have access to cost-efficient and effective recovery solutions. Our partnership with the National Association of Broadcasters ensures its members can be confident in their ability to recover no matter the circumstances happening around them.”
The program provides custom-made assistance for NAB members featuring disaster recovery and business interruption services concentrating on power, technology, space and connectivity that will help broadcasters operate at their fullest capacity. Additional information on Agility Recovery Solutions and other NAB member services will be on display in booth C944 during the 2011 NAB Show, held April 9-14 in Las Vegas.
