Clear Channel Radio Donates Stations and Equipment to Minority Media and Telecommunications Council
San Antonio - Jul 21, 2009 - Clear Channel Radio will donate stations and equipment to the Minority Media and Telecommunications Council (MMTC) through a program called the MMTC-Clear Channel Ownership Diversity Initiative. Earlier this year, Clear Channel donated a transmitter to the MMTC and now plans to donate several AM stations, starting with KYHN, Fort Smith, AR; WTFX Winchester, VA; KMFX Rochester, MN; and WHJA, Laurel, MS.
"In cooperation with the NAB Education Foundation's Broadcast Leadership Training Program, MMTC will use the stations for training and to incubate new minority and women broadcast owners. Clear Channel Radio's generosity and support creates an enormous opportunity not only for our own training programs, but for minority and women broadcasters who would not otherwise have the means to operate their own stations," said David Honig, president and executive director of MMTC. "We look forward to working with Clear Channel through this ongoing program to promote diversity in radio broadcasting."
The Minority Media and Telecommunications Council (MMTC) is nonpartisan and nonprofit, and is committed to promoting and preserving equal opportunity and civil rights in the mass media and telecommunications industries. MMTC is governed by a 17-member board of directors, which receives policy advice from a 30 member board of advisors.
