ISLAMABAD: Heavy fees for renewal of licences threatens the future of over 200 FM radio stations working in the private sector. This was said in a statement issued by the Pakistan Broadcasters Association (PBA). It said illegal radio stations were the main hurdle to the progress of broadcasting industry and demanded that the government take immediate measures to compensate the financial crunch faced by the private sector radio stations.

Spokesperson for the association Najeeb Ahmad said FM radio stations were facing severe problems due to financial laxity. He said almost 70 illegal FM radio stations were working in the country due to which the legal radio stations were facing an unhealthy business competition on the market.
