Statement on the Introduction of the Local Radio Freedom Act

21 February 2019

The Local Radio Freedom Act has once again been introduced in the House and Senate. The resolution, backed by the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB), falsely asserts that paying artists for their work is a “tax.”

musicFIRST Coalition spokesman Trevor Francis issued the following statement on the non-sensical resolution.

“Here we go again. The NAB will dedicate months and spend millions accumulating names on a motion that falsely protects “local radio” and that will never become law. Meanwhile, the radio marketplace continues to change for NAB’s members, and not for the better. The NAB may want to focus less on lobbying in D.C. and more on how radio can provide music fans the innovation they want in today’s digital world.”
