Washington, D.C. – Award-winning film producer and industry thought leader Evan Shapiro will keynote the 2022 NAB Show New York opening event on Wednesday, October 19 at 10:30 a.m. at the Javits Center. In his keynote address titled, “Bringing Media Into the Current Century, Now,” Shapiro’s notoriously interactive presentation will engage NAB Show New York attendees in examining the shifts occurring in today’s media landscape.

Shapiro’s address will take place in the Content Theater located on the show floor following welcome remarks by National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) President and CEO Curtis LeGeyt.

Evan Shapiro is an Emmy and Peabody Award winning producer of film, TV and podcasts. He is a professor of Media Studies at New York University and Fordham University schools of business and co-hosts a podcast called Cancel Culture. Many in media know him as the official, unofficial cartographer of the media universe. Using his specific point of view, Shapiro has mapped the tech and entertainment ecosystem, and through his essays, helps chart media's future. Shapiro uses these insights to power his change agency, ESHAP, which offers partners and consumers media insight as a service.

“With an impressive resume of award-winning projects, unique insight into the competition for audience’s attention and influential thinking about the future of the business, Evan Shapiro is a sought-after voice for preparing media professionals for the challenges and opportunities of tomorrow,” said Chris Brown, NAB executive vice president and managing director, Global Connections and Events. “We are excited to have Evan share his perspective with our community as we kick off the return to an in-person NAB Show New York.”

Shapiro will also participate in an exclusive interview on NAB Amplify as a preview to his NAB Show New York keynote address.
