2010 Marconi Awards

This year also marked the return of CBS properties to the Marconis.
CBS had withdrawn its NAB membership as a result of a dispute with the
NAB. (I can't remember what the dispute was about but surely, somebody
else here does.) Anyhow, my understanding is that, to be nominated for
a Marconi, a station or other entity must be, or be the property of,
an NAB-member company. When CBS rejoined the NAB, it strongly
encouraged the nomination of its stations for Marconis. I have the
feeling that stations may be allowed to nominate themselves. That
sounds horrible, but it isn't; it seems to be commonplace for awards
given to members of trade associations.
