Broadcast pioneer Shane O’Donoghue has been appointed director of broadcasting for the Empire State Building, the site of transmitters for every major broadcast station in New York City.

The 102-story tower, completed in the 1930s, also boasts the largest FM combiner system in the Western Hemisphere.

“Joining the iconic Empire State Building is definitely the high point of my diverse career in broadcasting,” said O’Donoghue. “It’s an exciting time to be a part of the team, as we renovate and upgrade the ESB’s broadcast capabilities and identify the potential growth areas for this business.”

O’Donoghue will be responsible for increasing and strengthening the building’s position as the leading broadcast facility in the region.

“The Empire State Building continues to be an industry leader in radio and television broadcasting in New York City—the media center of the world,” said James T. Connors, the building’s general manager. “As such, we needed a broadcast director to join our team that could lead the building to meet its business goals and provide top-notch services for our broadcast tenants. We are confident that Shane will take ESB broadcasting to the next level.”

O’Donoghue was working at ODA Consulting Inc., where he served for more than nine years as President, consulting for a range of broadcast, cable and satellite networks.

Prior to that, he served as vice president for technical services and quality assurance for CBS Television Network.
