Broadcast – Radio & Television 

Radio and television are vibrant competitors in the media and telecommunications marketplace.

WBK’s roots are as a law firm that specialized in representing broadcasters.  From those roots has grown a practice that continues to represent broadcasters with virtually every aspect of their legal and regulatory needs.  Our lawyers are steeped in industry knowledge and experience.  Rarely is there a major gathering of broadcasters at which one of our attorneys is not present, and a week does not go by when one of our attorneys is not cited in the trade or popular press for expert opinion on the day’s pressing broadcast issue.  And because we know broadcasting, we know the new issues broadcasters will face as they compete in the new digital media landscape.  

Because of our breadth of knowledge, our broadcast clients span the entire industry.  They include a major television network, many major radio and television group owners, local “Mom and Pop” stations, noncommercial broadcasters and start-up companies.  WBK provides regulatory, transactional and intellectual property services to these broadcasters, as well as to many other players in the industry – including state broadcast associations, banks and investment funds, and technology and other service companies.
