WASHINGTON, D.C. – In response to the Supreme Court granting an appeal by the Federal Communications Commission and the National Association of Broadcasters to a lower court ruling blocking changes to broadcast media ownership regulations, the following statement can be attributed to NAB President and CEO Gordon Smith:
“NAB looks forward to presenting our case before the Supreme Court this term. For almost two decades, the Third Circuit Court of Appeals has blocked common-sense changes to outdated broadcast ownership regulations to the detriment of local journalism. The time has come to allow the FCC to modernize its rules.”
The National Association of Broadcasters is the premier advocacy association for America’s broadcasters. NAB advances radio and television interests in legislative, regulatory and public affairs. Through advocacy, education and innovation, NAB enables broadcasters to best serve their communities, strengthen their businesses and seize new opportunities in the digital age.
