Prometheus has posted photos and video from their hula hooping protest in front of NAB headquarters today in support of low-power FM. According to the group dozens of people showed up to ask NAB head and former senator Gordon Smith to stop blocking the Local Community Radio Act, SB 592.
It turns out that so many people have been calling the NAB about LPFM that the organization has added a menu option to its voicemail specifically for those folks.
While mainstream press coverage of the bill has been relatively scant, today NPR’s All Things Considered aired a story. The NPR piece uses the WGXC barnraising as a jumping off point to demonstrate the value of community radio, but the NAB refuses to comment on record about their disinformation campaign to encourage anonymous holds on the bill.
