Ronald Walter, President and General Manager of WREG-TV News Channel 3, Tribune Broadcasting’s Memphis television station, was honored with the American Advertising Federation’s Silver Medal, the highest form of individual recognition given by local chapters of the American Advertising Federation. The annual award, which honors an exceptional leader for a career of outstanding accomplishment and contribution in the industry, was presented to Walter at the AAF’s luncheon today at the Memphis Botanic Garden.
“This wonderful honor is one which I am delighted to share with the many people who have helped me throughout my life. Among them is my WREG family which is the motor that propels me forward and keeps me on a good course. I am quite fortunate to have such talented people all around me,” said Walter.
The Silver Medal follows another recent accomplishment for Walter: In December, he was sworn in as the newest member of the Tennessee Valley Authority board of directors after being nominated by President Barack Obama and confirmed by the U.S. Senate.
