The National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) has announced that new We Are Broadcasters spots are now available for download. The spots highlight why there’s a big difference between broadcast stations and other sources of information, reminding policymakers and audiences that when Americans seek a trusted news source they know they can always rely on our local radio and television stations.
Please download and air these new spots. All stations, not just NAB members, can access the spots at WeAreBroadcasters.com/Resources. Radio and TV spots are available in English and Spanish and in a variety of lengths.
NAB launched the We Are Broadcasters campaign in 2013 to educate legislators about the many ways their constituents rely on local broadcasters. To date, more than 2 million spots have been aired by stations. As NAB works to ensure a strong future for broadcasters with a new administration and Congress, support of this campaign will continue to make a tremendous difference in the policy battles ahead.
Working together, we are reminding legislators that local radio and TV stations are the pulse of our communities – delivering the news, emergency updates, weather and entertainment that are relevant to our lives.
If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact Sue Keenom or Michelle Lehman at the NAB.
