“Being involved in NATAS has allowed me to not only interact with some amazing television professionals – it has kept me plugged into all off the great work being done in our region and beyond. The storytelling produced here, between the network affiliates, professional sports organizations, independent producers and production companies in the Mid America region, is some of the best of the best. I am proud to be part of the organization and am inspired by the fellow board members who are constantly working to make our chapter even better.” Oh, and “Chicks dig EMMYs”’
