Black Owned Media Demanding Equitable Share of American Rescue Plan

March 19, 2021

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.
