Solutions That Allow You & Your Organization to Benefit From the New FCC Studio Ruling


Mark Johnson, LinkUp Communications

Mark's brief talk will specifically focus on the new change in FCC regulations regarding local studios and the technology that will allow broadcasters to take full advantage of this new opportunity. A satellite broadcast engineer for decades, Mark is uniquely qualified to speak on this subject as an expert in the field of content distribution and integration. Mark has designed and installed multiple systems for non-commercial broadcasters, who have for years taken advantage of technical solutions to distribute their programing across multiple regions to their audiences while keeping a local feel to their programing.

Speaker Bio:
Currently, Mark Johnson is the Founder and Chief Strategy Officer of LinkUp Communications. A well-known leader in the broadcast transmission industry for over three decades, Mark has been the "go to" guy for other audio and video content providers for years, including NPR Satellite Services and Ka You Communications. Though Mark graduated from Florida State University in the 1980's, his real training began as an assistant to the Chief Engineer of WTNT AM/FM in Tallahassee, Florida and a broadcast producer for the Seminole Sports Network. Over the years Mark has continued his training through Harris Transmitter School (FM and FM25K), SBE Senior Radio Engineer (CSRE) and Global VSAT Advanced Certified.
