NAB to FCC: “Expand the landscape.”

The National Association of Broadcasters filed comments on the Commission’s biennial 2020 Communications Marketplace Report docket, urging the agency to expand the definition of the competitive landscape to include “over-the-air radio and television stations, satellite radio, cable, satellite and fiber-optic pay-TV providers, podcasts, and hundreds of online audio and video services.” Calling the agency’s outlook “woefully outdated,” the filing warns that broadcast radio stations no longer compete only with other radio stations.
