A ZoneCasting Flip-Flop From Yvette Clarke


LONG ISLAND CITY, N.Y. — Her Congressional district includes such Brooklyn neighborhoods as Park Slope, Brownsville, Crown Heights, Midwood, Flatbush and Sheepshead Bay, home to a diverse group of constituents ranging from Eastern European immigrants to African Americans and observant Jews tied to Chabad.

During the final two years of Barack Obama’s presidency, she commended the FCC’s efforts tied to “AM revitalization” by continuing an application period for FM translators exclusively for AM radio stations. As 2020 came to a close, she expressed pride in the FCC’s consideration of modifying FM booster rules “that could potentially help minority-owned stations better serve their communities.”

Rep. Yvette Clarke (D-N.Y.) was referring to GeoBroadcast Solutions’ ZoneCasting technology, presently under review and subject to a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking from the FCC.

Now, it appears Clarke has retracted that statement, and is now against ZoneCasting.
