The Radio Committee of the North American Broadcasters Association has announced the formation of a new Working Group — The Next-Generation Radio Working Group.

According to NABA, “the mission of the NGR WG is to identify and take advantage of new opportunities for broadcasters, with the goal of maintaining radio’s preeminent status as the preferred provider of local info and entertainment.”

Vice President, Distribution at NPR, Michael Beach, will chair the NGR WG, while NextRadio President, Paul Brenner, will be the acting-chair.

NABA says the NGR WG will continue the tasks — with a focus on FM chips in smartphones and digital radio — of the two previous NABA-RC working groups.
