NAB Statement on FCC Second Allocation of Auction Repack Reimbursement Funds

WASHINGTON, DC -- In response to today's announcement by the Federal Communications Commission that it will allocate an additional $742 million for broadcasters' incentive auction repack expenses, the following statement can be attributed to NAB Executive Vice President of Communications Dennis Wharton:

“NAB welcomes the FCC making significant additional repack reimbursement funding available following passage of the recent appropriations legislation and RAY BAUM’S Act authorizing additional funding if needed. We look forward to continuing to work productively with the Commission to ensure that broadcasters are fully reimbursed and that stations are not forced to reduce service due to circumstances outside their control.”
