The Museum of Broadcast Communications (MBC) just moved into their new location on State Street. To celebrate this, the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences (NATAS) is producing an event about the past, present and future of Television Programming at MBC.

The event will begin with a reception and tours of the museum for the first hour.

The panel and live webcast begins at 6:00 p.m. and MBC Founder, Bruce DuMont, will give a presentation that will cover the birth of television up to the present. Following that, a group of panelists representing local and national television entities including Sean Compton, President of Programming and Entertainment for Tribune Broadcasting and V.J. McAleer, Senior Vice President of Production at WTTW11/Chicago will talk about what types of programming their stations and networks are developing now. The panel will end with a representative of an online distribution company talking about the content of the future.


This event is a co-presentation of the National Academy of Television and the Museum of Broadcast Communications.
