Membership Dues

Membership Dues

OAB membership dues are used to support advocacy efforts at the federal and state levels to protect the interests of broadcasters.

Dues are based upon a station’s annual revenue. Commonly-owned stations with studios located in the same market may combine revenue of all stations for purposes of paying membership dues. Membership dues are billed annually in January.
