The Library of American Broadcasting Foundation will honor nine industry icons for lifetime achievement November 15 at New York's Gotham Hall during LABF's Giants of Broadcasting & Electronic Arts annual awards ceremony. The event, to be hosted by ABC News' "Nightline" co-anchor Juju Chang, will be produced for LABF by the International Radio and Television Society Foundation.

The Giants of Broadcasting celebration was created by LABF, a charity dedicated to preserving American broadcasting's rich history. The event honors those creators, innovators, performers and journalists who have left an indelible mark on the field of electronic arts.

Since the Giants' inaugural event in 2003, LABF has recognized more than 200 industry leaders. Proceeds from the luncheon support the work of LABF, which includes the Library of American Broadcasting, housed at the University of Maryland. LABF preserves and provides access to archives that highlight broadcasting's profound influence on culture throughout the world. A portion of the luncheon proceeds will support the IRTS Foundation's student training and diversity initiatives.
