Protesters stormed the doors of the NAB Radio Show in San Francisco on Friday, with a group of five chaining themselves together sitting in the lobby of the Moscone Center. Another protester made it all the way to the stage at a breakfast session featuring FCC Commissioner Harold Furchtgott-Roth.

"We're protesting the corporatization of the airwaves," said one protester.
