NAB Radio SVP John David told NAB Radio Board members meeting this week that while radio membership remains at a “near-record” level, new members have not offset the financial impact of the loss of the approximately 180 Infinity stations just before the spring show.
The Radio board has also passed a resolution urging the FCC to adopt IBOC as the single DAB technology standard for terrestrial radio.
Ibiquity told board members it expects to deliver FM test results to the NRSC and FCC in September and AM test results in early 2002.
Federated Media President John Dille and Hubbard Radio Group President Virginia Morris are the new NAB Radio Board chair and vice chair respectively. Both were elected this week at the semi-annual NAB board meeting.
