She will serve on the board alongside newly elected president Sarah Glover, a social media editor at NBC Owned Television Stations. With the exception of the media-related representative, a position won by Tanzi West-Barbour, the national director of the Black Alliance of Educational Options, all other NABJ board of directors positions were unopposed. The student representative position is vacant.

During the campaign, Dorothy established her number one priority: jobs, as traditional media companies continue to downsize. She also promised quarterly broadcast webinars to share trends, information and advice from industry pros.

“I look forward to serving and enhancing the financial efficiency of this great task force,” said Pope, whose clients are affiliated with the NFL, NBA, Showtime and VH1. His Sun Times blog, Ex Posts Facto, offers a fresh perspective on entertainment and sports news and events.
