Longtime FCC attorney SCOTT CINNAMON and veteran broadcast consultant and AM radio station owner BURKE ALLEN have teamed up to form the non-profit AM DAYTIMERS ASSOCIATION, an advocacy group in WASHINGTON D.C. for AM stations who must sign off, or operate at greatly reduced power, after local sundown.
Among their objectives is to assist AM station owners with lobbying the FCC to change its rules to allow AM station licensees to own FM translators to operate within the AM stations’s contour 24 hours a day, as proposed by the NAB in a recent petition for rule making filed with the FCC. The pair also plan to assist AM daytimers with other matters of concern, from operations to programming to engineering.
