A ban on cigarette advertisements on TV and radio (specifically those stations broadcasting on FCC-regulated airwaves) went into effect in 1971. Since tobacco ads were no longer on the airwaves, there was no longer an obligation to air anti-tobacco advertising and those ads went off the air, too.

The new law bans all radio and television cigarette commercials effective at midnight Jan. 1.
