WASHINGTON, D.C. — How important is diversity in broadcast media ownership?
Without the tools needed to foment multicultural owners, “we may not have an opportunity to learn, to lead, and to own,” warns Karen Slade, VP/GM of Stevie Wonder-owned KJLH-FM 102.3 in Los Angeles.
Slade made the comments Thursday morning during the FCC Media Bureau symposium on current and future trends in the broadcast radio and TV industries.
What’s the solution? A minority tax certificate.
