Vegas PBS Engineering Director to Serve on The Society of Broadcast Engineers’ National Advisory Group

(Las Vegas) – Vegas PBS’ director of engineering, IT and emergency services, George Molnar, has been selected to be a part of The Society of Broadcast Engineers’ Emergency Alert Services (EAS) Advisory Group. The Society of Broadcast Engineers (SBE), the lead national organization for broadcast engineering professionals, stated that the creation of the group is intended to stay up to date with developments regarding EAS that will affect SBE members, including changes in federal regulations, policy and technology, and communicate pertinent developments to appropriate SBE national leadership and staff.

Molnar, along with group members Larry Wilkins (group chair), James Hoge, Ed Czarnecki and Harold Price will provide insight on solutions concerning reports of origination or distribution problems from broadcast stations and state emergency communications committees.

In 2008, Molnar played an integral role in constructing and ensuring Vegas PBS’ current building was up to LEED Gold Certification standards for environmental and energy use, as well as a public safety and emergency center designed to stand up to the challenges of a post-9/11 world. As a trusted entity for the Southern Nevadan community, Vegas PBS transmits emergency alerts to viewers’ homes regarding severe weather and civil alerts.

“I’m honored to represent Vegas PBS and public television on this national platform. The community recognizes PBS as a trusted resource for public safety,” said Molnar. “When people think of PBS, they know they’re in a safe place.”
