NAB Statement on Proposed AM Radio Rule Changes

WASHINGTON, DC -- In response to the announcement by FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler that he will propose changes to the rules governing AM radio, the following statement can be attributed to NAB Executive Vice President of Communications Dennis Wharton:

"NAB is grateful Chairman Wheeler has announced plans to circulate an item to his FCC colleagues designed to revitalize AM radio. AM broadcasters have uniquely served local communities for nearly 100 years. The time is ripe for the FCC to follow through on the tremendous efforts of Commissioners Clyburn and Pai so that AM broadcasters can continue to play a vital role in the fabric of our nation. We look forward to working with the Chairman and the Commissioners to help ensure the item ultimately adopted serves the American public in the best manner possible."
