Sixteen-Year-Old Broadcaster Marks Decade of CES Coverage
Published on Mon, Jan 7, 2013 (4:42 p.m.)LAS VEGAS, NV - January 6, 2013 - This week, Jennifer Smart is celebrating her 10th year as press at the International CES - and she doesn't even have her drivers license yet!
"I was tiny when I attended my first CES 10 years ago, and we had to be up at the crack of dawn for live radio broadcasts from the show floor. Technology has changed a lot in 10 years, and CES is an amazing event where I get to see those changes happening and meet the people behind them," Jennifer says.
In between filming her TV show and conducting interviews on the show floor, this young broadcaster will be holding meet and greets at her mobile studio in the plaza across from the convention center.
Jennifer has another thing to celebrate this year - the recent resolution of a long dispute with CBS over use of her service mark, "For Kids… By Kids." Without admitting any guilt, CBS Radio has agreed to stop using the mark in its branding of station KYDZ in Las Vegas, and not to use it anywhere else.
Jen continues, "When I spoke on the Rising Stars of Radio panel at the NAB Show in Dallas this year, I made a vague reference to corporate bullies, but couldn't say anything else. Now that the issue is resolved, everyone knows who I was talking about…"
Jennifer is available for interviews while she is in Las Vegas. Call (866) 995-3664 or email [email protected] for scheduling.
