Media Bureau Extends Low Power FM Filing Window

 - Second LPFM Webinar Rescheduled for Oct. 24

The Media Bureau (Bureau) has announced that the deadline for filing Form 318 applications for new low power FM (LPFM) stations will be extended from October 29, 2013 until November 14, 2013, 6:00 p.m. EST.  Additionally, the Bureau has rescheduled the second LPFM webinar for October 24, 2013.

The LPFM window is currently open and completed Form 318 applications may now be submitted.  The Bureau recognizes that potential applicants had no ability to access Commission information and tools or to discuss filing issues with staff during the recent government shutdown.  The expanded window period is designed to ensure that all applicants have sufficient time to complete and timely file applications.

Additionally, the second LPFM webinar will be held Thursday, October 24, 2013, from 1:00 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. EDT. The session primarily will be a question and answer period where potential applicants can ask Media Bureau staff their specific questions on areas such as the LPFM Channel Finder, creating a CDBS account, completing Form 318, and any other issues related to the LPFM window and the filing process.

The webinar will be broadcast live over the Internet at and will be archived for future reference.  Participants can submit questions by email prior to or during the webinar to or by Twitter using the hashtag, #LPFMquestions.  The Bureau will respond to as many questions as possible during the session.  Open captioning will be provided.
