FCC Notice of Proposed Rulemaking for AM Revitalization

The FCC adopted a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (“NPRM”) to introduce a number of possible improvements to the AM radio service and the rules pertaining to AM broadcasting. They seek to further revitalize the AM band by identifying ways to enhance AM broadcast quality and proposing changes to our technical rules that would enable AM stations to improve their service. The goal is to help AM broadcasters better serve the public, thereby advancing the Commission’s fundamental goals of localism, competition, and diversity in broadcast media.
