The NAB today responded to a recent study by STAN LIEBOWITZ, a professor at the UNIVERSITY OF TEXAS AT DALLAS, who claims that radio airplay can hurt album sales.
In response, NAB EVP DENNIS WHARTON said, "Everything's bigger in TEXAS, including the imagination of professors who claim that radio airplay of music does not boost record sales. There are certain alleged 'studies' that can be rejected out of hand as nonsense, and this one belongs at the top of the charts."
