“NRB goes to bat for our members. When we learned of the removal of Newsmax from DirecTV’s satellite platform, NRB immediately turned out to support Newsmax through media and advocacy channels. We’re delighted by the announcement that Newsmax will be back on DirecTV platforms tomorrow thanks to a resolution between Newsmax and DirecTV to resume carriage under mutually agreeable terms. The NRB association exists to maintain access for faith-driven communicators and preserve diversity in programming.
