Texas radio station license renewals due this year

Texas radio stations face an important and daunting federal regulatory task in 2013 – submission of their FCC license renewal applications. 

It’s a task that should be undertaken with all seriousness because without an FCC station license, there’s not much need for a building full of radio broadcast equipment.

Full power commercial and noncommercial radio stations and LPFM stations licensed in Texas communities must begin airing pre-filing license renewal announcements on Feb. 1.

License renewal applications for these stations, and for in-state FM translator stations, are due by April 1.

TAB’s FCC legal counsel, Pillsbury Winthrop Shaw Pittman, has prepared a handy summary that contains the schedule of the pre-filing and post-filing license renewal announcements as well as sample scripts to use.

TAB also has scheduled an Executive Briefing webinar later this month on the FCC radio license renewal process.

Attorney Gregg Skall of TAB Associate Member law firm Womble Carlyle Sandridge & Rice will bring stations up to speed on this time consuming and mandatory FCC requirement for Texas radio stations.  

Sign up today to review the necessary steps and timetable for the 2013 Texas radio station FCC license renewals, as well as tips for completing the online renewal form. 

The 90-minute workshop takes place on Tuesday, Jan. 15 at 2 p.m. CST.

This TAB webinar is a FREE member station online service, arming you with the latest information and tips, right at your desktop.    

There is no limit to the number of station staff who can sign up for this offering.

Texas TV station staff may also wish to sign up for this webinar offering as Texas TV license renewals will be due in April of next year.

Keep in mind that the TV license renewal application contains more questions and certifications than the radio version, but taking part in the webinar is a good prep for next year.
