FullSizeRender-PaiWASHINGTON, D.C. — As part of his Keynote Address delivered to North American Broadcasters Association (NABA) Future of Radio and Audio symposium attendees yesterday at NAB Headquarters, FCC Chairman Ajit Pai discussed about what can be done to promote the vitality of radio.

He started with what the Commission could do, and an cause that he has made clear is near and dear to his heart — the survival of radio stations between 530 kHz and 1700 kHz.

Pai’s comments came as the FCC released the official agenda of its February Open Meeting set for Thursday, and in the “Media” section — as expected — is a consideration of a Second Report and Order that would relax the siting rule for an FM fill-in translator rebroadcasting an AM broadcast station.
