The National Association of Broadcasters has announced that Ira Goldstone, technology coordinator for the Tribune Company and vice president/chief technology officer for Tribune Broadcasting Company, is the winner of this year’s Television Engineering Achievement Award.

He is the chairman of the Media Security and Reliability Council Task Force on Future Technologies/Digital Solutions and a fellow of the Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers. In addition, he is a member of the board of the Advanced Television Systems Committee (ATSC) and was the original chair of the ATSC Applications Sub-Committee.
