Local Radio Freedom Act Plus Meet Our Newbies!
31 July 2017
We were in the studio with Andrew Shearer, owner of Royal Broadcasting, parent company to The River 95.3 & Sports Radio AM 1450 to talk about the Local Radio Freedom Act and it’s impact on community radio stations such as ours. The bipartisan resolution opposes “any new performance fee, tax, royalty, or other charge” on local broadcast radio stations. You can view the House version on their website: https://www.congress.gov/bill/115th-congress/house-concurrent-resolution/13/text , or click here to download the pdf version: BILLS-115hconres13ih
As of the airing of this show, Congressman Goodlatte has not shown support for this bill. To voice your support to Congressman Goodlatte, please visit his website: https://goodlatte.house.gov/
In the second segment of the show, we introduced you to the newest members of our staff: Meg Clowser and Jimmy Bowman. We’re excited to have them on our sales team and know they’re excited to work with our local businesses to increase their traffic through on-air, digital & social media marketing options.
