NAB Statement on Supreme Court Decision on Review of Media Ownership Ruling

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- In response to the Supreme Court ruling in favor of an appeal by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) and the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) 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 commends today’s unanimous decision by the Supreme Court that the FCC’s recent and long-overdue modernization of its broadcast ownership regulations was lawful and appropriate. It is critical that the Commission continue to examine its media ownership rules to ensure that America’s broadcasters are able to compete and meet the needs of local communities across the nation in today’s media landscape. We look forward to working with the Commission on this effort given the essential role radio and television broadcasters play for all Americans."
