Texas Stations Must File FCC Annual EEO Public File Report by April 1, Post on Station Website

Texas radio and TV stations must file their annual EEO Public File Report in the station Online Public Inspection File by Friday, April 1.

The report must also be posted on the station website if there is one.

Under the FCC’s EEO Rule, all radio and television station employment units (“SEUs”), regardless of staff size, must afford equal opportunity to all qualified persons and practice nondiscrimination in employment.

Texas television stations have additional EEO report duties that are part of this year’s FCC license renewals, also due April 1.

Scott Flick, an attorney with TAB’s FCC counsel Pillsbury Winthrop Shaw Pittman, said Texas TV stations “must submit their two most recent EEO Public File Reports along with FCC Form 2100, Schedule 396 as part of their license renewal applications.”

Flick and attorney Elizabeth E. Craig have prepared an advisory on stations’ obligations when filing the annual EEO Public File Report online as well as necessary EEO reporting steps Texas television stations must take as part of their license renewals.

You can read the advisory here.

This EEO reporting must occur before the renewal is filed as there are specific questions related to it on the renewal application.

Questions? Contact TAB’s Michael Schneider or call (512) 322-9944.
