Broadcasters Foundation Recognizes Family of the Late Stu Olds

Broadcasters Foundation Recognizes Family of the Late Stu Olds

More than 300 broadcasters were in attendance at the Plaza Hotel in New York earlier this week to honor Alan W. Frank, President and CEO, Post Newsweek Stations, as he received the 2011 Golden Mike Award.  The fundraiser generated over $300,000 in support of the Broadcasters Foundation of America, the charity that provides aid to broadcasters in desperate need.

During the evening, the Foundation recognized the Stu Olds family.  A fund established in Olds’ name after he passed away in December 2010 has raised over $450,000 in support of the Foundation’s mission.  Olds was the Chief Executive Officer and President of Katz Media Group. The Broadcasters Foundation has provided millions of dollars in aid to colleagues who lost their livelihood through a catastrophic event, debilitating disease, or unforeseen family tragedy.
