WASHINGTON (LVPR) — KIOF 97.9 FM / Las Vegas Public Radio officially congratulates President-Elect Joe Biden and Vice-President-Elect Kamala Harris as all Electoral College Votes have been now certified as stipulated on January 6th under the U.S. Constitution by Vice President Pence and the U.S. Congress as well as the U.S. Senate.

As a State of Nevada Public Broadcaster, we welcome incoming President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris on January 20, 2021 on much badly needed regulatory reforms and KIOF hopes to work directly with the Biden/Harris Administration on numerous flaws discovered with the Local Community Radio Act of 2010, a public law that was formerly signed into law by former President Obama on January 4, 2011.

The next iteration of the Local Community Radio Act (many broadcasters hope to see a Local Community Radio Act of 2021 which replaces all "secondary" terminology and all existing non-commercial broadcasters are treated equally after years of service to their communities irregardless of "size" if non-commercial broadcasting is to survive and be relevant throughout the United States due to the massive penetration of Internet based online audio services) is badly needed.

Through FCC research and trends in the non-commercial vertical market, many operations around the United States have begun to seek alternate options as in commercial operations as a viable path going forward through regulatory reforms that give broadcasters "choice" so those operations can compete effectively in vertical marketplaces, particularly in those under-performing markets where most "public broadcasters" now have dropped to the bottom or completely off Nielsen Ratings and those very specific broadcasters continuing to "laundering millions of dollars in state/federal tax payer money for themselves" across various states, including Nevada as seen over a number of years.

These broadcasters, not only here in the State of Nevada, but as well as in numerous communities throughout the United States can finally be placed on a more equal footing in their marketplaces so local journalism can thrive as well as economic sustainability of the Low Power FM Service, particularly, can continue to flourish over the coming years around the exponential growth of the Internet.
