 (Las Vegas, Nevada) Nevada Broadcasters Association (NVBA) President Mitch Fox announced today that the Findlay Automotive Group will receive the prestigious Community Achievement Award at the organization’s annual Hall of Fame Gala on August 24th at the Four Seasons Hotel.

 “Under the leadership of COO/CFO Tyler Corder, the Findlay Automotive Group has redefined philanthropy as one of the most community-minded companies in the state of Nevada,” said President Fox. “The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, the American Lung Association, the American Heart Association and so many other non-profits have benefited by the generosity of this company. In addition, Findlay partners with our member stations as part of that outreach. Findlay Automotive Group was an easy choice to be the recipient of the Community Achievement Award at our annual Hall of Fame Gala.”

 The Findlay Automotive Group now consists of 34 dealerships in 6 states and every one of those dealerships is heavily involved in financially supporting charitable organizations in their respective areas. Employees also donate their time to assist non-profits. As COO and CFO, Tyler Corder has served as President of Safe Nest, the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society and the American Red Cross of Southern Nevada and is actively involved in other Nevada charities.

This year marks the 24th Nevada Broadcasters Association Hall of Fame Gala and will take place on Saturday, August 24, 2019 at The Four Seasons Las Vegas. All money raised at the Hall of Fame Silent and Live Auctions benefits the Nevada Broadcasters Foundation’s Tony and Linda Bonnici Broadcasting Scholarship Fund which provides tuition scholarships to students attending Nevada’s Colleges and Universities.

A politically divided FCC has voted to eliminate the main studio rule. The vote was 3-2 with the two Democrats strongly dissenting.

That was the almost eight-decade old requirement that broadcasters, radio and TV, maintain a main studio in or near their community of license.

The FCC voted unanimously last May to propose eliminating the almost eight decades old rule. FCC Chairman Ajit Pai had said it had become outdated because in the digital age the community has access and can engage with stations via social media or email without having a physical studio nearby.

He also said maintaining a physical address is an expense better put to other uses, like adding more local programming. Broadcasters have said that expense can range from $20,000 a year to several hundred thousand dollars.

Stations are still required to have a local, toll-free telephone number, and to maintain any portion of their public files that is not online at a publicly accessible location within their community of license.
