More support for AM radio in cars

The National Association of Farm Broadcasting (NAFB) sent a letter to Senator Debbie Stabenow (D-MI) urging her support in asking auto manufacturers not to remove broadcast radio—and AM radio in particular—from their in-dash entertainment system offerings. The letter says in part, “In rural America, AM radio is critical for those without reliable cellular or broadband access. Farmers in the field, and on rural roadways not connected to cellular or broadband, also turn to AM radio for the latest weather updates, crop reports, local information, and entertainment. For farmers and ranchers, radio continues to be the primary source of daily agriculture news for listeners throughout the year.”
