WASHINGTON, D.C. -- In response to an agreement between Congress and the FCC on a revised proposal regarding the operation of FCC field offices, the following statement can be attributed to NAB Executive Vice President of Communications Dennis Wharton:
"NAB thanks the many members of Congress who expressed concern over proposed cuts in FCC field offices, and we applaud Chairman Wheeler and his staff for resolving this issue in a manner that better protects against airwave interference. We also salute Chairman Wheeler's willingness to address the rampant growth of pirate radio, which creates significant interference challenges for radio listeners who rely daily on their legally-licensed hometown stations."
