NAB Asks BMW to Reconsider AM Radio
WASHINGTON—NAB President and CEO Gordon Smith has written a letter to BMW, asking the automaker to reconsider a recent decision to remove AM radio from its new BMW i3 vehicles.
In his letter, which was addressed to BMW of North America President and CEO Ludwig Willisch, Smith reinforced both AM’s significant history and its current offerings.
The car company had cited interference from the model’s all-electric motor. Smith responded: “NAB appreciates BMW’s concern that the i3’s electric motor could cause interference with AM signals and leave customers frustrated. However, BMW’s electric car competitors have addressed this AM signal interference sufficiently enough that their vehicles still come equipped with AM radio.”
