Rising Above says what our industry and our broadcasters must be and do. Do we have challenges? Yes, but in these stressful times comes opportunity, and embracing the blessings in this storm is crucial to not only surviving this but actually thriving in it. Our industry is strong, and our people are resilient. Simply, Rising Above is about reminding us why we have been successful and outlining a path so we continue to rise.”
