Dan Abrams Goes Mobile

Blogging from the 2008 NAB-RTNDA conference in Las Vegas.

NAB_Abrams_4.14.jpgThe verdict for Dan Abrams: he likes him some mobile content. Especially after the warm welcome he got this morning. Abrams moderated a panel discussion on a new standard that will allow all of us to watch live TV anytime, anywhere. (Our brother blog, MobileContentToday has more on the session.)

In his introduction of Abrams, the chairman of the OMVC, Brandon Burgess said it was “a pleasure to have someone” of Abrams’s “stature” moderate the new media discussion. Burgess went on to talk about Abrams’s 15 years with NBC News, his management of MSNBC, and his “new project,” his 9pmET show, Verdict.

After the gushing, Abrams jumped in with “good thing this is not scripted.”

• Also seen at the conference, former CNN and NBC correspondent Mike Boettcher with a stuffed backpack, and a posse of digi-heads planning their RTNDA-NAB coverage strategy.
