Press Release:
Civil Rights Group Partners With Ethnic Media Group To Launch Radio PSA Campaign To Help Consumers With Digital TV Transition (PDF)

New America Media and the Leadership Conference on Civil Rights Education Fund (LCCREF) are informing consumers how to prevent their older, analog televisions from going dark when television stations begin all-digital broadcasting. We have produced three radio PSAs — two in English, one in Spanish — that provide critical information to consumers. We are urging radio stations and websites to air these PSAS. Radio stations and webmasters can download the PSAs from these links:

We also have an op-ed by Wade Henderson, head of the Leadership Conference on Civil Rights Education Fund (LCCREF), about how this shift from analog to digital tv will impact your community and what your readers can do to continue to get programs on their older televisions. It is available in Chinese, Vietnamese, Korean, Arabic, Spanish as well as English. You can download the PDF documents from these links:
