NAB has filed in federal appeals court asking the federal judiciary to step in and correct the Federal Communication Commission's (FCC) mistake in designating Standard General's proposed acquisition of TEGNA for a hearing before an administrative law judge.
While NAB does not typically advocate for or against specific transactions involving broadcast companies, the Commission's handling of this merger has exposed major flaws in the current system.
We must create a more transparent, fair and predictable environment that allows broadcast companies a meaningful chance to compete in the marketplace and continue serving the public. Read NAB President and CEO Curtis LeGeyt's statement here.
