Answer my quick quiz…
Who are the two US Senators from your state?
Who is the US Representative of the District you live in?
Who are the US Representatives from each of the Districts your stations reach (aka the communities you serve)?
While you are working hard to keep the station on the air everyday (financially and otherwise), it’s not likely that you give “politics” a lot of thought. But, it’s very likely that the decisions you make are guided by legislation and regulation. Given that the broadcast industry is one of the most highly regulated businesses in the US, it’s time to think about “politics.”
