NABOB applauds FCC ruling that gives some AM stations access to FM translators
 
(October 27, 2015) A recent by ruling by the Federal Communications Commission will make it possible for owners of Class C and D AM radio stations to explore taking their programming to the FM band through the use of FM translators. The decision by the commission, as part of its AM Radio Revitalization proceeding, gives these smaller stations the first opportunity to buy existing FM translators and relocate them to the markets they currently are licensed to operate in.

The National Association of Black Owned Broadcasters applauded the FCC's decision. Jim Winston, President of NABOB said, "We have been working diligently to help our Class C and D AM stations obtain the first opportunity to obtain FM translators.  We are very pleased that all five Commissioners came together in a spirit of compromise to unanimously approve this order.  We recognize that Chairman Wheeler had some concerns about the FM filing window for new translators, and we greatly appreciate his willingness to compromise on this issue. Also, we greatly appreciate the leadership of Commissioner Clyburn in initiating the compromise process and of Commissioner Pai for adding additional compromise proposals."

Winston added, "This order will allow Class C and D AM stations the first opportunity to buy existing FM translators now and will allow them the first opportunity to apply for new translators in 2017 when the window opens.  This is a great victory for small AM radio station owners."

By NABOB's count, there are approximately 70 black-owned AM stations in the U.S., 50 of which will be eligible as Class C and D stations to get the first shot at buying the translators.
