The California Broadcasters Association (CBA) promotes the broadcast industry and the audiences they serve. The impetus of this mission rests in the belief that broadcasters play an essential role in their communities. Their powerful influence is given and guarded by the fundamental rights of this country, and in return each radio and television station must operate “in the public interest.”
