NAB Spent Over $3 Million in Lobbying in Q2

TV transition was the big topic

The National Association of Broadcasters spent just over $3 million in the second quarter of this year on lobbying regulators.

That’s according to a House disclosure form filed July 20, reported the Associated Press, which noted the bulk of the $3.3 million in funds went towards lobbying about the TV digital transition.

Other topics included indecency, the radio performance royalty, media ownership and efforts to prevent the reinstatement of the Fairness Doctrine. The NAB lobbied Congress, the Federal Communications Commission, National Telecommunications and Information Administration and other government agencies in the April to June period.
