October 28, 2013

The FCC has released its numbers on official licensed broadcast stations. According to the agency there were 30,367 as of Sept. 30. Rough totals are over 22,000 radio stations of some kind.

That total includes translators, boosters and LPFMs. That number could pop when LPFM licensing gets into full swing.
