Here's the view from our room. We're staying at Caesar's Palace this year. The Hilton doesn't capture the "glitz" of Vegas like this joint does.

Las Vegas greets me with a hand deep in my wallet as I have arrived for this year’s National Association of Broadcaster’s convention dovetailing in with the gathering of the Radio Television News Director and the Broadcast Education Association. NAB holds it’s events inside the Hilton and its massive ballrooms Sunday through Wednesday. The BEA moves it all over to the Vegas Convention Center where the acres and acres of tech and consultant exhibits are on display.

While nothing is free in Vegas—not even a hotel shuttle—I’ll bump into folks who I haven’t seen in a while from academia to old newsroom pals to former students. In addition to the media advisors panel I’m presenting with on Friday, I am looking forward to a number of events including the RTNDA’s Wednesday morning panel on contemporary journalism ethics and issues entitled “What Would Ed Murrow Do?” I hope to add some additional pictures to my blog and check in through the week.
