2010-petition

Senate Bill 379 is a bill, which will destroy Black Radio and remove it from our list of radio listening choices. This bill taxes radio stations based on the items played for their listening audience. S. 379 will place a huge burden on radio stations in today’s economy. Radio stations will have to begin cutting programs that do not bring in huge profits. Since the revenue from most Black Radio stations is small or nonexistent, they will be the first to go. Most of the tax revenue will be sent overseas to foreign companies that own many of the record labels.

Radio One Baltimore will have a Radiothon this Thursday April 22nd in support of the “NO RADIO TAX” petition drive! WOLB, Magic 95.9, 92Q & Spirit 1400 will be collecting signatures from 6am to 6pm (WOLB will be collecting signatures from 6 am on 4/22 until 6 am on 4/23 ) from individuals in the community who are against Senate Bill 379.
