NAB Ad Highlights Relationship Between Music Sales and Radio Airplay

WASHINGTON, DC -- The National Association of Broadcasters today placed an advertisement in Congressional Quarterly (CQ) and National Journal's Congress Daily highlighting the relationship between free radio airplay and record sales.

"Radio is the number one way listeners discover new music and new artists. This free promotion translates to billions of dollars each year in music, concert ticket and merchandise sales for labels and their performers," reads the advertisement.

The advertisement features a mosaic comprised of gold and platinum albums given to radio stations by record labels in appreciation for promoting music through free radio airplay. To download a hi-resolution PDF of the ad, click here.
