Mo Abudu, CEO of Nigeria’s EbonyLife TV, has been made a director of the New York-based International Academy of Television Arts & Sciences (IATAS).

The move means Abudu joins the board of the organisation in charge of the world-famous International Emmy Awards. Her appointment comes off the back of Abudu’s ongoing effort to secure global recognition for Nigerian TV and film productions.

Abudu said: “I’ve always wanted to be a member of the International Academy to help make African voices heard when it comes to nominating and rewarding the world’s best television shows. To be approved as a director is even better, because we need a seat at the table when important decisions about our industry are being made. I’m grateful to the Academy for their confidence in me.”

Founded in 1969, the IATAS is an independent organisation that brings together leading media professionals with the aim of discussing and promoting strategies to develop quality global television programming.
