Radio, Television, and Digital Media Senior Lecturer Jim Wall has been chosen as a National Association of Television Program Executives (NATPE) Faculty Fellowship recipient for the January 2014 NATPE Marketplace and Conference in Miami Beach, Florida.

Celebrating over 50 years of service to the ever-evolving global television industry, NATPE continues to redefine itself and the services it provides to meet the needs of its members and the industry. What has remained constant is NATPE’s commitment to encouraging the growth and supporting the success of video content development, creations, production, financing and distribution across all platforms.

NATPE is the most important international "must-attend" Market and Conference held in the U.S. The NATPE||Miami 2014 theme "No barriers. New business." reflects a commitment to creating a market for the linear and digital communities, as well as advertisers and brands. NATPE breaks down the barriers by setting new expectations and possibilities, and creates the environment where deals get done across every platform. 

The Faculty Fellowship Program provides selected college & university media faculty with complete access to the sessions and activities of the annual NATPE Market & Conference. The goal of the Program is twofold: to expose the educational community to current television issues and practices, and to foster improved communication and cooperation between educators and the industry.

The annual NATPE Market & Conference attracts executives from around the world for sessions featuring leaders from all facets of the global telecommunications industry, along with hundreds of exhibiting companies. NATPE promises to continue offering the world of television to all participants under one roof.
