Wheeler weighs in.

nab2016-wheelerFCC chairman Tom Wheeler did a Q&A session at NAB 2016, during which he commented that radio is “portable and free.” He noted, “Technology changes, and the question is whether the people in it change with it.” As far as the issue of activating FM chips in cellphones goes, Wheeler said, “The market place is succeeding. We are seeing mobile carriers increasingly beginning to offer it, and that’s good.”
