WASHINGTON, DC -- In response to the FCC announcing an additional allocation of the TV Broadcaster Relocation Fund for eligible broadcasters and MVPDs, the following statement can be attributed to NAB Executive Vice President of Communications Dennis Wharton:
“NAB appreciates the FCC decision to release additional funding to cover a larger share of broadcaster costs related to the spectrum ‘repack’. We intend to work with policymakers to ensure that broadcasters are quickly and fairly compensated for these expenses. Our overriding goal is a successful repack that protects viewers and is completed as expeditiously as possible.”
