NAB President/CEO Curtis LeGeyt said broadcasters must remind the public and automakers of the ongoing relevance of radio including AM. “It’s easy to say in a time of disaster, ‘Well listen, I got an alert on my phone.’ But what does that alert say? ‘Tune into your local media.’ And those AM stations serve as the backbone for the emergency alerting that goes through the broadcast system.” He was with Univision Los Angeles’ Gabriela Teissier.

FCC Chairwoman Jessica Rosenworcel announced the “Future of Television” initiative, a public-private effort led by the NAB to boost the rollout of NextGen TV. On a less amiable note, the NAB days later asked a federal court to force the FCC to complete its 2018 quadrennial review of media ownership rules; it accused the commission of a “perpetual slow-roll” and flagrantly ignoring the mandate of Congress.
