NAB planning full-court press against spectrum grab


The FCC and wireless interests are taking long, ravenous, saliva-drenched acquisitive looks at broadcast television spectrum, and the NAB is getting set to enlist the public in a campaign to maintain possession. To that end, it will be sending out a PSA on the topic to all broadcast television stations on 12/21/09, and is asking for it to be aired frequently between Christmas and mid-January.

The House Subcommittee on Communications, Technology, and the Internet is holding a hearing on the topic Tuesday 12/15/09 that will include the testimony of NAB President/CEO Gordon Smith.
