Founded in 1911, the Broadway Association is devoted to the cultural and economic develoment of the Broadway theatre district. Kind of a "neighborhood chamber of commerce," the Association serves as a welcoming committee for area businesses and a network for exchanges of ideas.

Leahy joined TDF in 1992 after 32 years of entertainment experience at CBS television. Broadway Association president Richard Basini made the announcement of Leahy's chairmanship at the organization's February luncheon.
