Washington, DC - Sep 9, 2013 - On Sept. 5, 2013, the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) board of directors voted unanimously to pursue the relocation of a new NAB headquarters in the Capitol Hill/Capitol Riverfront section of Washington, DC. The decision came as a result of months of strategic assessment on how best to improve NAB's advocacy efforts in Washington, and to diversify assets of the trade association. The board vote came after a supporting unanimous recommendation was made by the NAB Real Estate Committee and the NAB Executive Committee.

"I am delighted by today's vote, which would move the NAB to the center of government action in Washington," said NAB President and CEO Gordon Smith. "Traffic has become so congested in much of Washington that it is extremely difficult for members of Congress and the FCC to visit NAB's current headquarters. A move to the Capitol Hill/Capitol Riverfront area would provide policymakers and regulators easier accessibility to NAB, and will allow NAB to better showcase broadcast innovation."

The NAB currently owns its 1771 N Street headquarters in the Dupont Circle section of Washington, where the association has been located since 1947.
