Free over-the-air broadcasters have a mandate to serve the public interest in the local communities to which they are licensed. Every broadcast station in the country is a local station and an integral part of the community in which they serve.
Local radio and television stations:
Are always there, always on … providing a lifeline during emergencies and times of crisis.
Provide local news coverage of important issues and events.
Provide coverage of political campaigns and debates, helping voters make informed decisions.
Participate in and sponsor local community events and fundraisers.
