MBNAB1.pngFOX Business Network anchor Nicole Petallides moderated the opening breakfast discussion this morning at the 2010 NAB Show. The topic: taking live programming on the go, on any number of new mobile devices, including the iPad, which was front at center during this morning’s chat.

The panel included former NBC exec now Chairman and CEO of Ion Media, Brandon Burgess and Dave Lougee, president of Gannett Broadcasting. Both are members of the OMVC, the open mobile video coalition.

The OMVC announced it will test a new Mobile DTV broadcast this summer in Washington, D.C. on a number of devices distributed by the group. Programming will come from Washington’s NBC, CBS and FOX stations as well as Fox News, MSNBC and CNBC.
