FCC Chairman Pai Praises Broadcasters Response to COVID-19 Crisis

Last week FCC Chairman Ajit Pai praised broadcasters for their response to the COVID 19 crisis. In a press release he stated:

“As always, in times of emergency, broadcasters are stepping up to serve their communities and help keep people informed, healthy, and safe,” said Chairman Pai.  “From airing PSAs on social distancing to supporting distance learning with educational programming, broadcasters are going above and beyond the call of public service.  I want to especially recognize those reporters who are on the front lines, often putting themselves in harm’s way, to obtain vital information on COVID-19 to ensure their viewers and listeners have the most up-to-date and accurate information.  We’ve seen time and again that broadcasters’ efforts to keep their communities informed during emergencies help save lives, including when it comes to this pandemic.”
