WASHINGTON, DC -- Today the National Association of Broadcasters released a new resource for broadcasters assessing their options for participating in the upcoming incentive auction. This information provides a market-by-market compilation of data the FCC has released concerning opening bid prices and high-end estimated payouts. It also provides a first look at the number of volunteer stations the FCC may need to participate in each market to repurpose targeted amounts of spectrum. This analysis is based entirely on information the FCC has publicly released.
This new resource be found at: http://www.nab.org/spectrumAuctions/participationbyMarket.asp
The following statement can be attributed to NAB President and CEO Gordon Smith:
"NAB is committed to being the most comprehensive and accurate resource for all television broadcasters interested in how the incentive auction may affect them, regardless of whether or not they intend to participate. We look forward to continuing to work with the FCC to ensure a successful auction for all stakeholders."
