NOBEL Women Understand the Importance of Radio


Let’s talk about FREE over the air radio, because as elected officials we understand the importance of radio to our community and to our constituents.


Radio continues to deliver local advertising, emergency weather reports, entertainment, political updates, as well as relevant information that keeps loyal audiences informed.


Your voters care about their local radio stations! To that end, I hope you will keep an eye on the radio industry; any regulation and any legislation to protect it.


We all can think of how radio is important to us, and I invite all NOBEL Women to comment below and tell other NOBEL women your own personal stories about how and why radio is important to you.


As you all know, here in Louisiana, and other states effected by storms, radio has been a savior to so many of our hurricane and tornado victims.  I have attached this video that shows how radio was there for us during previous storms and how free radio continues to be there for us during storms and other disasters throughout the nation and the world:  RAIDIO WAS THERE:  http://www.youtube.com/.


A NEW RADIO POLL: http://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=alan%20burns%20and%20associa


A new poll of over 41,000 Americans by Alan Burns and Associates and Triton Digital reports the following, (in a nutshell!):

  • It’s free.
  • It’s easy.
  • It’s good for you!
  • AND it’s safe to listen in the car!


What’s not to love!  It is the ultimate public private partnership – the broadcasters deliver compelling entertainment and information content on the public air waves – with so much new technology, it’s still a favorite (by kyle). Take a bow policy makers and broadcasters!


I know you understand the value radio brings to our community, as you keep tabs on activity in Washington this fall, please keep an eye on the radio business and it’s issues.


Thank you for listening!



Senator Sharon Weston-Broome
