WASHINGTON, D.C. -- In response to the Supreme Court's decision today declining to review broadcasters' appeals regarding the FCC's media ownership rules, the following statement may be attributed to NAB Executive Vice President of Communications Dennis Wharton:
"We're disappointed the Supreme Court declined to review rules that limit local broadcasters' ability to compete with our national and multinational pay programming competitors. NAB will continue to advocate for modernizing ownership rules that stem from an era of 'I Love Lucy'."
