Kane tops ATAS int’l board

Arthur F. Kane has been tapped executive director of the Intl. Council of the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences, effective Jan. 1.

He succeeds Richard Carlton, who is retiring after 10 years.

Kane’s mandate will be to continue the efforts of the council to promote excellence in international television.

“The coming year is our 25th anniversary, which should give us great promotional opportunities; it will certainly be the theme of next year’s Intl. Emmy event,” Kane said. “I also think the council will need to explore new ways of fundraising and how to expand the membership into new geographical areas and into new parts of the broadcast business, Like, say, to the telcos.”

The council’s efforts include seminars and publications geared to the interchange of information and analysis of issues relating to broadcasting. It also sponsors the International Emmy Awards, held annually in New York City. This year’s programming awards will be bestowed Nov. 22.

In the past three decades, Kane has held key positions at both CBS and Viacom , becoming a founder in 1981 of CBS Broadcast Intl. as its co-managing director and VP/international sales.
