Encore: The Future for AM Radio

November 25, 2013

AM radio audiences are at an all-time low, but Ajit Pai, Commissioner of the Federal Communications Commission, has a plan to try and save AM signals from the static. Pai joined us for the first half of this hour on Focus to talk about why he is pushing for new policies to help AM stations bolster their signals.
We'll also listen back to when Host Jim Meadows also talked with Michael Harrison, publisher for Talkers Magazine, about the evolution of the AM dial from old time radio to music to conservative talk programming and sports. Can AM radio survive as we know it in an era of rapidly evolving technology? We’ll talk it over this hour on Focus.
What roles has AM radio played in your life? Are you ready to give it up? Or do you still think it's relevant? We’d love to hear from you this hour on Focus!
