Foundation To Honor Stanley Hubbard
Hubbard Broadcasting Chairman Stanley Hubbard will be honored with the Lowry Mays Excellence in Broadcasting Award by the Broadcasters Foundation of America. The award will be presented during the foundation's annual breakfast on April 10, at the Wynn Hotel in Las Vegas, which is held in conjunction with the NAB Show.
Hubbard's industry accomplishments include overseeing the building of the first successful UHF television station in a VHF market; with others in the Hubbard organization, creating the world’s first satellite news-gathering organization; and establishing U.S. Satellite Broadcasting (USSB).

He is a recipient of the Satellite Broadcasting Communications Association’s Arthur C. Clarke Award, the National Association of Broadcasters’ Distinguished Service award, the University of Minnesota M Club Lifetime Achievement award, and more.
