-11- COY APPRAISES FUTURE OF AN & FI - —SEE TV AS SEPA^T E^ITITY Speaking at an October mooting of the New York Radio Executives Club, Wayne Coy, FCC chairman, attracted industry wide attention with three predictions: 1. Television will probably never replace sound broadcasting completely. 2. Television will probably eventually operate separately from sound broadcasting—either AN or FI.. 3. Sound programming which appeals to special groups will continue to have an eager, if not a mammoth audience. Coy estimated that the next seven to eight year period will see 1000 television stations on the air. He pointed out, however, those stations will not cover the entire country, and that large areas will be unserved by television. FM was described as a service which is meeting the need in a real way with, com¬ munities of 30 and 40 thousand marking some of FI l s greatest success stories. Those arc communities which have heretofore not had primary radio service of any kind.
