NAB Donates Radios to Puerto Rico

The National Association of Broadcasters will send 10,000 battery-operated radios to Puerto Rico for distribution to residents affected by Hurricane Maria. "Time and again, broadcast radio has served as a lifeline to communities desperate for information and support," says NAB Pres./CEO Gordon Smith. "Our fellow Americans in the Caribbean now face a once-in-a-generation humanitarian crisis, and radio is one of the only communications resources available. We admire the resolve of our friends in Puerto Rico and are proud to undertake this effort with help from FEMA to keep citizens safe and informed."
