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 joins us for the first half of  the show to talk about why he is pushing for new policies to help AM stations bolster their signals.

Host Jim Meadows also talks 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.
