CAB boss McCabe exits

World Brief

Michael McCabe, the head of the Canadian Assn. of Broadcasters for the last 13 years, will step down Nov. 9.

McCabe helped forge the 600-member CAB into a powerful lobby group for private radio and TV broadcasters, a C$4 billion ($2.6 billion) industry. He oversaw strategy as the Internet, specialty and pay TV emerged as major players in the business. In 1999 he helped the CAB secure more flexible TV policies from Canada’s broadcast regulator. His most recent contribution is Future Plan, the five-year plan for the digital age.

McCabe’s replacement will be recruited this summer.
