Pence Lends Voice to “Save AM” Campaign.
The campaign to keep AM radio in electric vehicles and other new cars is getting support from Mike Pence. The former vice president voices part of a PSA airing on WABC Radio in New York City.

John Catsimatidis, owner of Red Apple Media, which owns WABC Radio, is leading the “Save AM Radio” campaign. In reaching out to political contacts who might help support his call to protect AM radio, Catsimatidis asked Pence to voice the spot.

In the one-minute spot, Pence calls AM talk radio “a meeting place for the American people” and says “making sure that these new electric vehicles include FM and AM, as well as all the other new technology, I think is a real priority for the free flow of information in America.”
