He added, "These broadcasters reach hundreds of millions of people on every continent each day, and so understand the challenges that exist in our constantly changing media environment. It's great that these six executives are able to contribute to the work of the AIB, supporting the Association and its Members around the world."

 The Executive Committee meets regularly throughout the year, providing governance for the Association, providing oversight of the AIB's permanent Secretariat and helping to develop the AIB's work plan.
