The NAB opposes the media ownership legislation that moved through the Senate Commerce Committee Wednesday.
President/CEO Eddie Fritts said he was pleased that the committee voted to roll back the national TV ownership cap to 35%.
"However, the bill also adopts provisions that reinstate the newspaper-broadcast cross-ownership ban and
require radio companies to divest legally acquired stations. Consequently, NAB will strongly oppose this legislation."
