Kentucky Members of the National Association of Black Owned Broadcasters (NABOB)The National Association of Black Owned Broadcasters was founded in 1976 with the headquarters in Washington, D.C. The NABOB website states: "NABOB has two principal objectives: First, to increase the number of African-American owners of telecommunications facilities, and second, to improve the business climate in which they operate. The overall objective is to maximize the potential for financial success through providing advocacy resources and information in critical business areas including, advertising sales, station acquisition, financing, and federal broadcast regulation."
The majority of the members are located on the eastern side of the United States, including 11 NABOB members who were in Kentucky: one in Latonia, two in Lexington, and eight in Louisville.
The NABOB conducts workshops, compiles statistics, lobbies and provides legal representation for minority ownership policies, and holds an annual Communications Award Dinner.
