NAB Statement on Passing of Bud Paxson

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- In response to the passing of broadcaster Bud Paxson, the following statement can be attributed to NAB President and CEO Gordon Smith:

"Broadcasters have lost a friend and a legend in the passing of Bud Paxson, who was a tenacious advocate for over-the-air radio and televsion. Bud's support for program carriage rules as part of the 1992 Cable Act helped sustain diverse voices on the airwaves and allowed free and local broadcasting to remain a competitive force in today's multichannel world. NAB mourns the loss of a true giant of broadcasting."
