Longtime Radio Television Digital News Association (RTDNA) member and former chairman of the board Dan Shelley officially assumed his duties as Executive Director of the Association and its Foundation on Monday morning. Shelley has served as Incoming Executive Director of the two organizations since April. As part of the leadership transition, Shelley has spearheaded the Association's Voice of the First Amendment Task Force, working to educate the public about the important role of journalism in society and defending journalists and news organizations against attacks.
"The board of directors is proud to welcome Dan Shelley in his new role," said RTDNA Chiar Scott Libin. "With his staunch dedication to the advancement of First Amendment freedoms and responsible journalism, our Association could not be in better hands."
Shelley is a veteran Edward. R. Murrow Award-winning radio, television and digital media executive, serving in news leadership positions with iHeartMedia, Radio One, CBS Television Stations and Journal Broadcast Group. He began his career at KTTS-AM and FM in Springfield, MO. He has been a member of the RTDNA/F board of directors for nearly two decades, serving terms as the Association's chairman in 2005-2006 and Foundation chairman the following year, as well as chairing the programs, awards and convention planning committees.
"RTDNA's role as a defender of press freedom, a source of thought leadership in ethical reporting and a champion of journalistic excellence is more important than ever," said Shelley. "I look forward to building upon the work we have done on behalf of electronic journalists for more than 70 years."
Outgoing Executive Director Mike Cavender will provide transition assistance to the organizations through December 1.
