NAB Response to FCC Chairman Genachowski's Speech Today Before the New America Foundation

WASHINGTON -- NAB Executive Vice President of Media Relations Dennis Wharton issued the following statement today.

"As a one-to-many transmission medium, broadcasters are ready to make the case that we are far and away the most efficient users of spectrum in today's communications marketplace. We look forward to working with policymakers to help expand the roll-out of broadband without threatening the future of free and local television, mindful of the fact that local TV stations just returned more than a quarter of our spectrum following our transition to digital."
