NAB Statement on Third Circuit Ruling on Broadcast Ownership Rules

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- In response to the decision this morning by the Third Circuit Court of Appeals regarding the FCC's broadcast ownership rules, NAB Executive Vice President of Communications Dennis Wharton offered the following statement:

"There have been sweeping changes in the media landscape since most of the broadcast ownership rules were adopted decades ago. NAB believes that modest reform of rules to allow free and local broadcasters to compete successfully in a universe of national pay TV and radio platforms is warranted."
