Across the Finish Line: Meeting the March 1 Deadline to Move Your Public Inspection File Online

Pillsbury Winthrop Shaw Pittman, in association with the Massachusetts Broadcasters Association and other participating state broadcasters associations, presented:

Across the Finish Line: Meeting the March 1 Deadline to Move Your Public Inspection File Online

Click the link above to listen to the recorded webinar and click here to view a PDF of the slides.

Almost six years after requiring TV stations to move their Public Inspection File online, March 1 marks the deadline for radio stations that have not yet moved their file online to complete that task. The FCC required commercial radio stations with five or more full-time employees in the top 50 markets to make the move in 2016. As a result, this “last wave” of stations moving online consists mostly of noncommercial and smaller-market commercial radio stations. That means the drain on limited station resources will often be disproportionately greater than it was for TV and large-market radio stations making the move.

Scott Flick
Partner, Plllsbury

Lauren Lynch Flick
Senior Counsel, Pillsbury

Based on the feedback we have been hearing from broadcasters across the state, we are sharing this webinar recording with our members to address many of the technical challenges that are making the move difficult for many stations. The recording covers what you need to do and what the FCC has said it will do for you, so that your employees can accomplish the task in the most efficient manner possible. Other topics include talking about the future – how maintaining an online file changes not only how you interact with your file, but how the FCC and others will interact with it as well.
