MusicFIRST’s Crowley Criticizes iHeart’s Resistance to Paying Artists for Radio Airplay

After iHeartMedia released its Q4 earnings, Joe Crowley, chair of the musicFIRST Coalition, issued a statement criticizing the broadcasting giant’s resistance to paying recording artists for radio airplay. “iHeart spent yet another earnings call crowing about its profits to Wall Street, yet even as we speak, the company’s lobbying machine is descending upon the Capitol in a desperate attempt to convince lawmakers that the radio giant can’t afford to pay artists for the use of their music on AM/FM radio.”
