NAB files comments with the FCC on Audio Marketplace Competition

NABThe NAB has filed comments with the FCC concerning competition in the audio programming marketplace as part of the agency’s congressionally-mandated communications marketplace report. The NAB’s comments state, “While today AM and FM radio still account for 50% of daily time spent listening to audio sources for those ages 13+, well ahead of any other single audio platform, total time spent listening to AM/FM radio on a weekly basis has been heading downward.”

The comments laid out the current audio marketplace and the NAB notes that “digital technologies have significantly expanded the number of audio content providers and the marketplace choices available to listeners. This expansion within the marketplace has led to changes in the marketplace for both listenership and advertising.”
