Ongoing reports of certain automakers removing AM radio from their automobiles is of great concern to all of us at NAB and within the radio industry.
We are working with media and policymakers to shine a light on the risk this poses to public safety and have developed tools to allow AM listeners to tell their members of Congress to support legislation the AM Radio for Every Vehicle Act that would ensure that the 82 million Americans who depend on AM radio each month for news, entertainment and critical safety information can continue to have access to this reliable communications medium.
While NAB leads broadcast advocacy in Washington, D.C., local radio stations have an important role to play in touting the benefits of AM radio. It is important that we remind automakers that more than 80 million Americans depend on AM radio for public safety, weather, traffic, news, community connection, entertainment and more.
We urge you to use these tools below to talk about the many benefits of AM radio on your station’s airwaves, online and in direct appeals to listeners.
