Guthrie, McCoy, Talbott Added To BFA Board of Directors

The Broadcasters Foundation of America has elected Kim Guthrie, President of Cox Media Group, and DuJuan McCoy, President, Chief Executive Officer, and Founder of Bayou City Broadcasting, to its Board of Directors, and named Julie Talbott, President of Premiere Networks, an Officer and Vice President.

The new members and Talbott were voted in during the Board meeting that took place in New York City earlier this week.

“The addition of these highly respected industry leaders to our Board and executive ranks will further enhance awareness of our mission to provide assistance to broadcasters in need,” noted Dan Mason, Chairman of the Broadcasters Foundation of America. “Their dedication to helping our colleagues who need it most is an inspiration that I hope will reverberate across our industry so that we can help more broadcasters in need.”

Guthrie oversees all content, sales and operations for Cox Media, including 14 broadcast television stations; more than 60 radio stations; seven daily newspapers, 11 non-daily publications; and more than 100 digital sites and services.

In December 2007, McCoy founded and became Owner, President and CEO of Bayou City Broadcasting, LLC. In 2008, his company agreed to purchase seven TV stations from Sage Broadcasting Corp., thus earning the distinction of being the only African American company to own and or operate a Fox Affiliate in the United States.

Julie Talbott
Talbott oversees the operation of Premiere Networks’ roster of more than 90 radio programs and services, while managing business partnerships with talent and leading and maintaining key affiliate relationships to sell and service Premiere Networks and Total Traffic & Weather Network.

The Broadcasters Foundation’s Board of Directors is comprised of highly respected broadcast executives who are committed to “giving back” through the Broadcasters Foundation. The members of the Board represent a wide array of broadcast and broadcast-related companies.
