Bill in Congress Could Charge More Money to Radio Stations

By  | 

A bill making its way through congress could make radio stations pay up more to play their music.

'The Performance Rights' Act would charge radio stations a royalty fee for the music artists.

The Chronicle of Higher Education reports that college radio stations would have to pay fees of 500 dollars to 1,000 dollars a year.

College radio stations like WANM at FAMU are concerned.

The General Manager says this fee could be devastating since his station is already struggling in this economy.

But the manager says there are strong lobbying efforts against the bill and he believes the bill will die.
