SCBA takes a proactive position in all matters concerning the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), federal and state legislative issues and local affairs. Some of the activities of SCBA include:

  • Annually, SCBA takes a delegation of broadcasters to Washington, DC to visit with each of our state’s Congressmen to express views and concerns of our association. Prior to these visits, SCBA leaders attend the National Association of Broadcasters Annual Leadership Conference to review legislation on Capitol Hill that pertains to the broadcast industry.
  • An annual Legislative Breakfast is held in Columbia bringing broadcasters and the state’s legislators together in an informal setting for discussion of issues and for an expression of thanks to our supporters. Following the breakfast, one-on-one meetings are held with key members of the South Carolina legislature.

  • SCBA retains the services of Riley Pope & Laney who monitor the state legislature for issues of interest to broadcasters and represents our interests with these decision makers.


SCBA encourages you to maintain ongoing relationships with your state and federal elected officials so that you can contact them when broadcast issues arise.  Learn who your senators and representatives are and obtain their contact information by using the links below.
