These days, it feels like the majority of Congress doesn’t agree on much of anything, but local radio listeners achieved a major victory this week when the Local Radio Freedom Act secured the support of the majority of the House of Representatives in the 117th Congress.
This resolution affirms the valuable impact of local radio in communities across the country and opposes any new performance fee on local broadcast radio stations.
As big record labels target local radio stations for onerous new fees, the Local Radio Freedom Act helps protect local stations and ensures they can keep bringing you news, weather and traffic, emergency alerts, and the music you love.
This is an important step forward, but local radio stations still need your voice to keep providing the services you need. Ask your member of Congress to support the Local Radio Freedom Act or thank them for their support.
