Why you should take action against the Local Radio Freedom Act:
- There is nothing “local” about this resolution – 50% of the revenue generated by terrestrial AM/FM radio in the United States is controlled by 10 corporations.
- These 10 “Big Radio” companies don’t need Congress to give them special treatment to help them succeed – they had over 30% operating margin in 2015 without paying a cent to music creators.
- Promotion does not equal compensation – and only a small percentage of songs played by big radio are actually new music.
Tell Congress to say “no” to Big Radio by not supporting the Local Radio Freedom Act (H.Con.Res.13 & S.Con.Res.6).
