The National Association of Broadcasters is geared up to see Apple include FM radio in the latest iPod nano.
It has been a stated goal of NAB leadership to see radio included in more mobile and portable products.
“Today’s announcement validates a longstanding desire by NAB and broadcasters across America to ensure that our free and local content is available on every conceivable mobile device and technology,” NAB spokesman Dennis Wharton said in a statement.
“On behalf of radio broadcasters across the country, NAB applauds Apple for recognizing the value of free, local radio. It gives America’s 235 million weekly radio listeners yet another platform to enjoy our free service and brings a valuable feature to one of the world’s preeminent entertainment products.”
