The National Religious Broadcasters took note of the holiday season and sent a letter to the FCC asking for reform of the ban on noncommercial stations fundraising for third-party charities.
Currently, unless a special waiver is issued, the practice is banned but in a letter from NRB President and CEO Dr. Jerry A. Johnson, the group asked the FCC to “to complete the rulemaking process in this worthwhile effort.”
