WASHINGTON, DC – Today, Reps. Mike Doyle (D-PA) and Lee Terry (R-NE) introduced legislation that would eliminate decades-old third-adjacent channel interference protections that preserve clear radio signals for the 232 million weekly listeners of radio.
Commenting on today's bill introduction, the following statement can be attributed to NAB spokesman Kristopher Jones:
"While NAB does not oppose LPFM in areas where low power stations would not cause interference, we will actively oppose today's proposed legislation. The 232 million weekly listeners of local radio should not be inundated with the inevitable interference that would result from shoehorning more stations onto an already overcrowded radio dial."
The National Association of Broadcasters is a trade association that advocates on behalf of more than 8,300 free, local radio and television stations and also broadcast networks before Congress, the Federal Communications Commission and the Courts. Information about NAB can be found at www.nab.org.
