AHEAD OF THE MIDTERM ELECTIONS NABOB
LAUNCHES GET OUT THE VOTE CAMPAIGN
In March, the National Association of Black Owned Broadcasters, Inc. (NABOB) announced the creation and launch of our “Use Your Power” campaign. The campaign is directed at the listeners of NABOB member and African American targeted radio stations.
Phase One of the campaign was designed to educate our audiences about the $1.2 trillion dollar consumer buying power of African Americans and to encourage them to use that power wisely. At that time, we explained that the campaign will have two goals. First, to encourage our audiences to patronize establishments that support our stations. Second, to encourage our audiences to vote in every election in which they are eligible to vote.
NABOB is now pleased to announce that we are launching Phase Three of the “Use Your Power” campaign. In Phase Three we have developed a series of 30-second public service announcements urging our listeners to GET OUT AND VOTE on Election Day, Tuesday, November 6th. We are encouraging our stations to air these important messages both over the air and through their digital platforms.
Stations may access Phase Three of the campaign by going to a special file transfer protocol (FTP) site. Phase Three amplifies the enormous voting power of African Americans and the need for them to exercise that power. Listeners will be directed to NABOB’s website for more information
Jim Winston, President of NABOB said, ““I would like to thank Perry Broadcasting and American Urban Radio Networks, for collaborating with us on this project,” said Jim Winston, President of NABOB. Winston added, “As business owners, we recognize that educating our consumers is as important as educating our electorate. It is important that our audiences understand that there is a direct link between economic strength within our communities and political strength. The “Use Your Power” campaign is educating our audiences about that link, and urging them to GET OUT AND VOTE!”
NABOB is here to serve you. Please don’t hesitate to contact us.
