April 24, 2020

WASHINGTON – Yesterday, U.S. Senator Roy Blunt (Mo.) joined a bipartisan group of his colleagues in sending a letter to the Office of Management and Budget urging support for radio and television broadcasters and local newspapers during the coronavirus pandemic.
“Our radio and television broadcasters and rural newspapers provide local and national news, emergency alerts, educational programs, and more to all corners of the United States. In many rural areas, broadcast stations are the predominant or only form of local information,” the senators wrote. “We encourage the Office of Management and Budget to work with federal agencies throughout the government to increase advertising in local newspapers and on broadcast stations in order to help ensure they are able to continue to operate throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.”
