NAB locks onto Locke


We have to figure that at this late stage, brand new Secretary of Commerce Gary Locke will not have much impact on the DTV transition, and usually, his role in the regulation of broadcasters will be de minimis. Nonetheless, the NAB welcomed his Senate confirmation. President/CEO David Rehr said, “Secretary Locke has first-hand knowledge of the lifeline role played by radio and television stations across America. NAB stands ready to work with him in concluding a successful digital TV transition, and in establishing policies that preserve the enduring value of free and local broadcasting.”
