The American Federation of Television and Radio Artists concluded its four-day national convention in Seattle on Sunday having re-elected New York actor Roberta Reardon to a third two-year term as the union's national president. The result had been widely anticipated, as she faced no serious challengers for the post. In a statement made to the convention early Saturday, shortly before the election results were announced, Reardon reiterated support for the current effort to merge AFTRA and the Screen Actors Guild.
