More Community Radio Channels Thanks To Low-Power FM

Representative Mike Doyle (D-PA) addresses the National Conference for Media Reform

Representative Mike Doyle (D-Pennsylvania) thanks the many people who helped pass the new Low-Power FM act that will create thousands of new community FM radio stations across the country. He tells independent journalists gathered at the National Conference for Media Reform in Boston that it was a bi-partisan coalition in Congress that made the law possible.

The law was passed after about a decade of opposition and lobbying from the National Association of Broadcasters.
“You don’t really need to have big lobbyists on your side when you have the voice of the people on your side.”
