Is a New Golden Age of Private Radio on the Horizon?

Morgan O'Brien  (Co-founder Nextel | Entrepreneur | Wireless Innovator)

Location: W325

Date: Wednesday, September 29

Time: 9:40am - 10:00am

Format: Keynote Presentation

Vault Recording: TBD

During the past several decades, O’Brien has been instrumental in founding a series of communications companies—Fleet Call, Nextel, Cyren Call and Anterix—with a variety of target audiences and business models. While different, these initiatives had a few things in common: a non-traditional approach to secure spectrum and a vision that proved to have a significant impact on both private-radio and wireless industries.

What’s next? No one knows for certain, but Morgan will offer unfiltered view inside his crystal ball. O’Brien promises to be very blunt about the obstacles he sees to the future, the significant industry transformations he believes are necessary, and the hard work ahead to make this vision a reality.
