More stations sign up


NAB announced that its television membership now stands at 1,170 stations, an all-time high. The previous record high membership level came in February 2001 at 1,166 stations (before a period of stress between the affiliates and the network O&O groups over NAB policy on ownership limits). "This is an important milestone for NAB and recognizes the increasing impact that Washington’s public policymakers have on the business of broadcasting," said NAB President and CEO David Rehr.
