NAB's Executive Committee has decided to form a Task Force on Responsible Programming following Wednesday's all-industry programming summit on indecency. The Task Force will review a number of options, including the possible implementation of an NAB Code of Conduct.
The first meeting of the task force will be in Las Vegas in connection with NAB2004.
NAB President/CEO Eddie Fritts said broadcasters "are committed to a plan of voluntary action" to handle the issue of indecency.
"Given the serious First Amendment concerns surrounding issues related to program content, it is our strong belief that voluntary industry initiatives are far preferable to government regulation," Fritts said.
