What’s in a Letter? A Lot for News Org

By Chris Ariens 

RTNDA, the organization made up mainly of news directors and other executives from local radio and TV stations, is changing its name.

B&C reports RTNDA (Radio & TV News Directors Association) will soon be known as RTDNA – The Radio, TV, Digital News Association. An announcement on their Website reads:

“RTDNA will still do what it does best — protect journalists and allow them to provide unencumbered coverage, offer training in the best practices for all digital journalists, and recognize excellence within the field of journalism. We’ll just do it with a renewed sense of purpose, a more inclusive spirit and a new name.”


The name change takes effect Oct. 13.
