You Can Help Save Local Radio
As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to impact every aspect of our daily lives, America’s local radio and television stations are providing critical news and information to keep our communities safe and connected.
Yet, the ability of local media outlets to serve our communities is being threatened by the economic challenges posed by the current crisis. As Congress considers legislation to provide relief to American businesses, tell your legislators how much you value your local stations and ask them to stand up for listeners and viewers like you.
You can go to this form created by WeAreBroadcasters, and fill in some basic information and it will automatically email your elected officials. Nippertown wrote to Sen. Gillibrand, Sen, Schumer, and Rep. Tonko today on behalf of our local stations, and you should, too.
Local radio is a source of pride in the community, they support local artists, businesses, and employ friends within our region. In this time of uncertainty the local radio stations that we know and love need our help. It won’t cost you anything except about 5 minutes of your time.
