FCC Enters Consent Decree With Texas Radio Stationposted on 7.18.2022
The FCC has adopted a consent decree between the commission and Best Media, Inc., licensee of KGBV-FM Hardin to resolve issues arising from the Media Bureau’s review of KGBV’s license renewal application.
The FCC had suspended the renewal and investigated Best Media for compliance with the Public File Rule contained in section 73.3527 of the Commission’s rules.
Section 73.3527 requires radio station licensees to maintain an online public inspection file and to upload certain documents to the FCC’s public inspection file database throughout the year.
Said the commission, “It is crucial that stations maintain online public inspection files that are complete and up to date because the information in them directly affects, among other things, the public’s ability to be informed about a station’s compliance with its obligations.”
KGBV agreed among other things, to implement a comprehensive compliance plan to ensure future compliance with its online public inspection file obligations and, one year after entering into the Consent Decree, submit a compliance report to the Audio Division of the FCC.
