FLAGSTAFF, AZ – March 9, 2017: Tribal stations could experience federal funding cuts that would lead to closure for many. In the article “Will Cuts to Public Broadcasting Silence Native Radio Stations?”, YES! Magazine explores the role of Tribal stations serving remote and rural communities, and the potential impact to those communities.
NPM President and CEO Loris Taylor states, “I am hoping that [closure of smaller Tribal stations] will not be the case. We’re trying to do everything that we can in terms of alerting our small stations to get prepared to buffer up their resources, to look at other streams of revenue if they can.”
