Your Opinion Counts
The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) & U.S. Congress wants your opinion regarding proposed rule changes.
Thank you for taking the time to comment on these proposed rule changes that would adversely affect your Air 1 station. The time you invest in this could keep Christian radio strong. Here is some additional information about what is happening and why your opinion counts.
While the FCC is considering these rule changes, at the moment nothing is "set in stone" as they await public comment. If any of these changes were adopted, there would be significant impact on our ability to minister to you and your community. These rules would not only affect our stations but also thousands of stations around the country. These rule changes could:
Require Community Advisory Boards: One board overseeing all broadcasters in that area. Appointed individuals who may not be friendly to the Christian mission of the station.
Require Additional Staffing: Adding tens of thousands of dollars in additional monthly expense to each affected station (even including some of our smaller facilities which ultimately might force us to leave the air in some areas).
Force Many of Our Translator Stations Off The Air: This rule would give priority to many new Low Power FM stations (LPFM) rather than existing translator stations. This means many of our translators would no longer be able to carry Air 1 programming.
When making a comment, we recommend starting with a statement about the importance of Air 1's programming to you, your family and your local community. The FCC is interested in how our stations are currently serving and impacting local areas.
Then, make specific comments regarding the above-mentioned items of which we oppose and hope that you do as well.
Again, thank you for letting the FCC know your feelings.
