The National Association of Black Owned Broadcasters (NABOB) is appealing to Congress for equitable distribution of the Biden/Harris Administration’s American Rescue Plan.

The $1.9 trillion dollar economic stimulus package, including COVID-19 vaccinations, testing, treatment, and prevention. While African-Americans have been disproportionately affected by coronavirus, the number of Black people seeking vaccinations remains lower compared to other communities.

Jim Winston, President of NABOB penned a letter to Congress member and Congressional Black Caucus Chair Cedric Richmond (D-LA) imploring that funding earmarked for healthcare and relief messaging to Black Americans be delivered from Black owned media outlets.

American Urban Radio Networks is the only African-American owned and operated RADAR-rated radio network in the United States.
