WASHINGTON, D.C. – In response to today's FCC vote approving an order establishing guidelines for an incubator program to promote diversity of radio station ownership, the following statement can be attributed to NAB Executive Vice President of Communications Dennis Wharton:
“NAB applauds the FCC for creating an incubator program that will help new entrants realize their dream of radio station ownership. Incubators are key to breaking down financial and operational barriers to entry for underrepresented communities interested in media ownership. NAB encourages the FCC to extend this initiative to local TV station ownership as well.”
