WASHINGTON, DC – NAB President and CEO David K. Rehr sent a letter to members of Congress this week urging lawmakers to oppose legislation that would remove interference protection rules on the FM dial.
"Local broadcasters do not oppose the licensing of LPFM stations," Rehr wrote. "We do oppose the introduction of thousands of micro-radio stations that would cause significant harmful interference to full power FM radio stations."
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.
