Gordon Smith

Gordon Smith has traded a life in politics for helping guide broadcasters through the labyrinth that is Washington, DC. The two-term U.S. Senator from Oregon has led the National Association of Broadcasters since 2009 and he’s under contract to continue heading the trade group through March 31, 2023 – even while keeping tabs on his family’s 100-year old frozen foods business. In a city where old battles never really end, even as new challenges emerge, there are lots on Smith’s plate at the NAB. Inside Radio caught up with him to discuss some of the current hot-button issues. Read the Q&A HERE.
