WASHINGTON, DC -- In response to the FCC's release of information packages for broadcast TV stations regarding participation in the broadcast spectrum incentive auction, the following statement can be attributed to NAB President and CEO Gordon Smith:
"It is clear the FCC staff put a great deal of work into developing this piece on reverse auction pricing, which is a key component of the auction. NAB commends the FCC for their efforts to get the ball rolling in this area. We will work with our members to sort through this comprehensive report as they do their own homework on the upcoming auction opportunity."
