WASHINGTON, D.C. -- NNAB President & CEO Gordon Smith was the featured speaker at The Media Institute’s Communications Forum luncheon today.

WASHINGTON, D.C. – In response to the introduction of legislation by Reps. Anna Eshoo (D-CA) and Steve Scalise (R-LA) that eliminates the legal underpinnings of the local broadcast system, the following statement can be attributed to NAB Executive Vice President of Communications Dennis Wharton:

WASHINGTON, DC -- Three Members of the House of Representatives and one Senator have added their cosponsorship to a resolution opposing "any new performance fee, tax, royalty, or other charge" on local broadcast radio stations. The Local Radio Freedom Act (LRFA), which signals Members of Congress's opposition to any potential legislation that imposes new performance royalties on broadcast radio stations for music airplay, now has 184 cosponsors in the House and 24 in the Senate.

The National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) announced the finalists for the 2019 NAB Marconi Radio Awards, honoring radio stations and on-air personalities for excellence in broadcasting.
