WASHINGTON, D.C. – In response to today’s approval by the Federal Communications Commission of an order that streamlines rules relating to interference caused by FM translators, the following statement can be attributed to NAB Executive Vice President of Communications Dennis Wharton:

“The FCC deserves credit for endorsing a common-sense compromise for reviewing FM radio listener complaints alleging interference from FM translators. FM translators have been enormously helpful extending the reach of AM radio stations. We’re pleased the FCC continues to embrace ideas that foster the revitalization of AM radio.”
