Reason for Running

The broadcasting industry is under more stress today than at any time in its history. Whether that stress comes from big tech focused on soaking up local advertising revenue or from government entities out of touch with the challenges facing our industry; the work conducted by the CBA is vital. I believe the CBA is integral to the success of radio and television broadcasters large and small across the state of Colorado. I am proud of the work that we have done and am excited about continuing that work.
