QUU announces veteran media executive Steve Newberry is named Chief Executive Officer of the company, effective April 1. In addition, he'll serve on the company's board of directors and receive an equity stake in QUU. Newberry currently serves as Executive VP/Industry Affairs and Strategic Planning at the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB), where he's been responsible for overseeing multiple NAB projects, including the organization's outreach and initiatives with the automotive industry and construction of a new NAB headquarters in Washington, DC.

Newberry will continue in his current role until March 31, 2020 to ensure a smooth transition and completion of the official opening of the NAB's new headquarters.

"Steve Newberry has been a tremendous asset to NAB and the entire broadcast industry for decades," said NAB President and CEO Gordon Smith. "While we hate to see him leave, we're delighted Steve will be with us through the completion of our move to a new headquarters this Spring. We're also pleased that Steve will be fulfilling his entrepreneurial passion with QUU, an auto dashboard initiative that uses technology to improve the listener experience and drive higher radio station revenue."

"It has been an absolute honor and privilege to work closely with Senator Gordon Smith and the incredible team at the NAB over the past several years, both as past Joint Board Chair and as Executive Vice President for Industry Affairs and Strategic Planning on behalf of the organization," said Newberry. "I look forward to the opportunity to work closely with Joe Harb and the QUU team to offer exciting, game-changing ad sync technology that provides results for broadcasters and their advertisers in the coming years."

"Steve's proven leadership and vast experience in the media industry made him the absolute perfect choice to oversee QUU," said QUU Company Founder and Chief Innovation Officer Joe Harb. "We look forward to driving the company to new levels in offering new, unique opportunities that provide outstanding results for broadcasters and their clients."

Newberry began his broadcasting career at the age of 14 and became a station owner at the age of 21. Besides serving as NAB Joint Board chair and Radio Board chair, he served as President of the Kentucky Broadcasters Association. Newberry has also been active in public broadcasting, having served for six years as a member of the national board of trustees of America's Public Television Stations and five years as chairman of the Authority for Kentucky Educational Television.
