FCC Notices benefit AM radio.

The Commission has adopted a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking allowing AM stations to broadcast in all-digital, not just the analog-digital hybrid currently permitted. Another NPRM proposes the elimination of the AM-FM in-band programming location rule. “NAB applauds the FCC,” said NAB Executive Vice President/Communications Dennis Wharton, “on moving forward with this proceeding to provide AM stations the option to broadcast using an all-digital signal. Broadcasters appreciate the FCC’s leadership on the issue of AM revitalization.”
