November TAB webinars Cover the FCC’s political rules, moving the Radio Public File online

TAB is offering two content-rich webinars in November to help member stations prepare for the 2018 political season and the online migration of Radio station Public Inspection File by March of next year.

Both TAB webinars are offered as a free service to member stations. There is no limit to the number of station staff who can sign up for them.

Moving the Radio Public Inspection File Online – Nov. 15, 11am CT

Register now!

All radio stations that weren’t part of the first wave of commercial radio stations required to place their Public Inspection File online are facing their own online Public Inspection File deadline next year. 

The vast majority of Texas radio stations, commercial AND non-commercial alike, have a lot of work to do between now and March 1, 2018, the deadline for the online migration. 

Broadcasters should not wait until the last minute to start this process, nor should they go into it uninformed.

In this hour long webinar, TAB’s FCC legal counsel Scott Flick of Pillsbury Winthrop Shaw Pittman, will provide the background and insight radio stations need to make the Public Inspection File move online worry-free!

Flick will cover the steps involved in making the move online, as well as the content that is needed in each subfolder of the file.

FCC's Political Broadcasting Rules – Nov. 30, Noon CT

In preparation for the 2018 Texas political season, TAB has arranged a webinar featuring attorney David Oxenford of TAB Associate Member law firm Wilkinson Barker Knauer, and Bobby Baker, the chief of the FCC's Political Broadcast bureau, to review the FCC’s political broadcast regulations.

In this two-hour session, Baker and Oxenford will discuss candidate on-air appearances including the news exceptions to the political broadcast rules; candidate and third party political advertising; sponsorship identification for such advertising; political file recordkeeping; political advertising sales practices; and lowest unit charge/lowest unit rate (LUC/LUR).

Stations should take advantage of this opportunity to reexamine the FCC’s political broadcast rules before the FCC’s political window opens in Texas on Jan. 20, 2018.
