[Commentary] It is always special to be in attendance at the annual National Association of Broadcasters Show, and 2014 was no exception.
What I took away from our discussion was the realization that today's media universe can no longer be viewed through myopic lenses and historic silos, and that the demarcation between over-the-air, cable, Internet and satellite broadcasting makes erstwhile legacy distinctions much harder to maintain.
Secondly, I always appreciate the chance to walk the show floor to see, firsthand, the innovative developments in broadcast technology.
Finally, the NAB provides a unique opportunity for regulators to talk to the industry professionals and operators who do not typically make it to Washington to lobby on policy issues. These real-world workers provide us with a perspective that is both realistic and refreshing, and I always learn more than I leave behind.
