The United States added 48 more full-power broadcast radio stations in the first quarter of 2014. That’s according to the FCC’s quarterly totals, released this week. Here’s that breakdown:
- AM Stations 4726
- FM Commercial Stations 6624
- FM Non-commercial Stations 4057
Low-power FM stations are down slightly in the quarter. Read this week’s LPFM Watch for more discussion of that.
There was an increase of 28 FM translator and booster stations since the end of 2013, bringing that total to 6,082.
No doubt about it, radio is growing.
