Keep Radio Free

The Issue

Big foreign record labels want more money. So they’re asking Washington to force radio stations to give it to them by creating a new performance fee—even though the radio industry already pays hundreds of millions every year in royalties.

Ninety percent of Americans listen to radio weekly. Radio creates music fans. Fans who purchase albums, attend concerts and buy merchandise—the profits of which go to the labels.

To a larger extent, radio is the soundtrack of our lives. We get an invaluable source of news, traffic, weather and, of course, unforgettable moments underscored by amazing music.

The labels are desperately looking to compensate for the record industry’s inability to adapt to the growing number of streaming services. All of a sudden, the labels think this system—which has helped produce the most successful music industry in the world—is broken.  It is not!  Help keep radio free to play and promote musicians new and old, along with news, community info and more.

AMBER Alert

BROADCASTERS KEY PARTNERS
IN PROTECTING OUR CHILDREN

We are proud to be active Members of the AMBER Alert Plan. Utah was the 10th state to incorporate it into action. We have one of the very best plans in the country.

The AMBER Alert is a cooperative partnership between law-enforcement agencies and local broadcasters. We thank our broadcasters for the voluntary support, which is the backbone of getting the community alerted and informed.

By interrupting programming to broadcast information about the missing child law-enforcement agencies gain the assistance of radio and TV listeners and viewers throughout Utah to become immediate assets to help recover abducted children and quickly apprehend the suspect.
