The National Independent Broadcasters was an industry trade group representing the interests of for-profit, over-the-air, non-network-affiliated radio broadcasters in the United States.

It was originally created in 1939 as part of the larger National Association of Broadcasters.[1] In 1941, it split off from that organization to become fully independent.[1] It represented some 200 independent radio stations (out of 800 total in the nation) that were not affiliated with any network.[2] Its activity seems to have diminished after 1943.

The president of the National Independent Broadcasters was Harold A. Lafount.[1]
