Broadcasting & Cable's Hall of Fame Chairman William McGorry has been elected to the board of directors of the Broadcasters Foundation of America, during a meeting of the board earlier this week. McGorry oversees Broadcasting & Cable's Hall of Fame nominating process and manages the annual awards event.

"Bill has been a long-time supporter of the mission of the Broadcasters Foundation, and we are delighted that he is joining the Board," said Broadcasters Foundation Chairman Dan Mason. "Every year, Bill ensures that the Broadcasters Foundation is a recipient of some of the proceeds from Broadcasting & Cable's Hall of Fame Awards dinner. Those much-needed funds go to helping broadcasters in need across our industry, either in monthly or one-time emergency grants. We are grateful for his contributions."

With more than 30 years in publishing, McGorry was instrumental in the growth of some of the media industries' most well-read business publications, including Broadcasting & Cable and Multichannel News. Previously, McGorry served the board of the International Radio & Television Society Foundation Inc. He is also the recipient of industry awards as an Honorary Beacon Award from the Cable Television Public Affairs Association; the Joel A. Berger Award from Cable Positive; the Vanguard Award, which he received from the National Cable & Telecommunications Association; and a Lifetime Achievement Award from the Women in Cable Telecommunications. McGorry was also inducted as a member of the Cable Pioneers organization.

McGorry has been married to his wife, Phyllis, for over 50 years, and is the father of six children. He is a graduate of City University, holds an MBA degree from St. John's University and served in US Marine Corps.

The Broadcasters Foundation's board of directors is comprised of respected broadcast executives who are committed to "giving back" through the Broadcasters Foundation. The members of the Board represent a wide array of broadcast and broadcast-related companies. For more visit information www.broadcastersfoundation.org.
