RTCA Executive Committee Announcement
Thursday, May 16, 2018
The Executive Committee of the Congressional Radio-TV Correspondents’ Galleries announces Mariam Khan from ABC News will serve as its new Chair for the remainder of the year. Ms. Khan replaces Walt Cronkite, who stepped down on May 14 upon accepting a new position outside of CBS News. Per the Committee’s bylaws, Ms. Khan was the runner up in our 2016 election and thus elevated upon Mr. Cronkite’s resignation. Paul Courson from Sinclair Broadcasting will fill out the remainder of Mr. Cronkite’s term on the Committee. Mr. Courson was the first alternate in the 2017 election.
C-SPAN’s Paul Orgel will remain Vice-Chair through the end of the year and serve as Chair in 2019.
