Nov. 2nd: A Radio Anniversary – What is National Traffic Professionals Day?

National Traffic Professionals Day honors those in all radio and television traffic departments, who schedule and work very diligently with programs, announcements and much more, on our nation’s broadcast stations

Here at WOGA we wish a very happy National Traffic Professionals Day to our very own traffic coordinator, Dave Burkett!

HISTORY

The first commercial broadcast took place on KDKA radio out of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania on November 2, 1920.  Also known as National Traffic Directors Day or National Traffic Professional’s Day, it honors the thousands of professionals directors in broadcast media since that day who have worked behind the scenes keeping the entertainment, talk shows, news and commercials flowing.  Through breaking news alerts, stormy weather, budgets and differing personalities, these men and women maintain program development.

HOW TO OBSERVE

Thank a traffic director and use #TrafficProfessionalsDay to post on social media.

TRAFFIC DIRECTORS GUILD OF AMERICA

The Traffic Directors Guild of America is a strong supporter of this annual celebration and recognizes traffic directors and their over 30 titles that are acknowledged in the business.

And of course, a big THANK YOU to all our wonderful WOGA listeners who make all of our jobs possible!
