What do you hope the Obama administration will do for the TV industry?
“We’re confident that an Obama administration will recognize the value of free and local broadcasting during these challenging economic times, and will appreciate the lifeline role that radio and TV stations play in providing communities with timely local news, information and public service programming. Our top priority is a successful DTV transition, and we will be working tirelessly with President Obama and his team to ensure that the Feb. 17 end of analog television goes well.”
—David Rehr, president-CEO, National Association of Broadcasters
“I hope that the Obama administration will oversee a smooth transition to digital transmission, issue clear and consistent rules which promote diversity in media ownership, curb the cable industry’s anticompetitive practices and hold broadcasters accountable through vigorous enforcement of the license renewal process. On the seventh day, it can rest.”
—Andrew Jay Schwartzman, president-CEO. Media Access Project
