NBA STATIONS URGED TO SUPPORT NAB "KEEP MY TV" CAMPAIGN

Pay-TV companies are aggressively working to make changes to legislation pending before Congress that could cripple free TV.

The time is now to unite as an industry.

We are asking all stations – radio and television – to consider airing the “Keep My TV” spot as often as possible from now through September 7. The spots urge listeners and viewers to call or email Congress, asking them to stand up against pay-TV’s attempts to hurt local stations.

Important:
As these spots are considered “issue advocacy” spots, your station must complete and file the special political file form that NAB’s Legal department has prepared for this campaign. Click here to download the form.

To download the spots, go to KeepMyTV.org/BroadcasterResources. On this page, you will also find the following resources to help you engage in our advocacy efforts:

  • Banner ads available for your station’s website that direct your audience to KeepMyTV.org, where they can learn more about the campaign;
  • A political file form prepared for this campaign;
  • A version of the spot to embed on your station’s website; and
  • An issue sheet on the Satellite Television Extension and Localism Act (STELA).

By participating in this campaign, broadcasters will send a clear message to pay-TV companies that we will stand united against proposals that negatively impact our audiences.  

We thank you for your participation in this important effort. Working together, we will ensure a strong future for broadcast television and protect stations’ ability to serve their local communities.

If you have any questions, please send them to advocacy@nab.org.
