A Celebration of Mike Keller
Retiring at the end of this year
The season opening meeting for SMPTE New England features an evening celebrating the many contributions of Michael T. Keller to the broadcast television industry. Mike is a thought leader, mentor and contributor to many of the products and systems in daily use today in many broadcast stations.
After a 25 year career at Hearst Television, culminating with his service as Director of Engineering, Eastern Stations, Mike will retire in December, 2017. Mike's responsibilities took him up and down the east coast and into the mid-west; but the local and regional impact of his work in New England is the most telling measure of a career well spent.
Mike is a second generation television engineer; his father, Thomas B. Keller is a SMPTE Life Fellow who was instrumental in the creation and launch of the Western Avenue technical facilities of WGBH. Between the Kellers, father and son, is a span of engineering service to the television industry of more than seven decades.
Doors open at 6:30 with refreshments served.
The evening's program will begin at 7:15PM
