Robert L. Johnson Speaks On FCC Chairman Wheeler’s Proposal To Increase Consumer Choice

robert_l_johnson_new2-500x263Commenting on the FCC decision, Robert L. Johnson, Chairman of RLJ Entertainment (NASDAQ: RLJE) stated, “I am very pleased with the FCC decision that will create significant new opportunities for minority content and diversity. The decision will also benefit millions of minority consumers who will be released from paying exorbitant monthly rental fees for access to this new era of minority programming. I congratulate Chairman Tom Wheeler and particularly Commissioner Mignon Clyburn, the only African American commissioner, for their commitment to providing an equal playing field for minority programmers who are looking to start their own distribution channels to entertain and inform the 13 million African American households.”
