“Since taking the reigns of Neuhoff Communications, Beth has shown strong leadership and has expanded her operations here in Illinois,” stated IBA’s Immediate Past Chairman Sarah Hautala when nominating Neuhoff for the award. “She continues to support local broadcasting and the interests of broadcasters.”
“Ms. Neuhoff is an exceptional choice for our Association’s most prestigious award,” added Dennis Lyle, president & CEO of the Illinois Broadcasters Association. “You’ll find no one more engaged and/or supportive of the broadcast industry today than Beth Neuhoff. She not only “gets it (local broadcasting,)” she “lives it!”
In addition to serving on the NAB board, Ms. Neuhoff is a Director of the Broadcasters Foundation of America; a Trustee of the National Association of Broadcasters’ Education Foundation (NABEF,) and a Trustee of the National Association of Broadcasters’ Political Action Committee (NABPAC.) In 2014 she was named as one of the “Most Influential Women in Radio” by Radio Ink magazine, and was a finalist for “Best Broadcaster in America” at both the 2014 and 2015 NAB Radio Shows.
A believer that in serving others, we serve ourselves, Ms. Neufhoff is proudest of the tremendous work her stations exert daily to better the lives in their communities.
“I am truly humbled to receive the Vincent Wasilewski Award and to be in the company of so many talented Illinois broadcasters, including my late husband, Geoff,” exclaimed Neuhoff upon learning of her selection. “In truth, the honor belongs to the hardworking team at Neuhoff Media. They go above and beyond daily to make "Media Made Locally" more than just a slogan. I am grateful to the Illinois Broadcaster's Association for this incredible accolade and the fine work they do on behalf of our profession.”
