FCC Reports Due in January – Note Changes to Children’s TV Reports

Just a reminder that the FCC has specific deadlines for posting files in your Public Inspection File.  Make sure you post these documents on time.

Quarterly Issues Programs List – Due January 10th.  This will cover the period October through December 2019.  For more information see the attached memo from our friends at Pillsbury Winthrop Shaw Pittman LLP click HERE.

Children’s TV Compliance with Commercial Limits – Due January 10th.  This report will apply to commercials aired in October, November and December.  Note the FCC adopted new rules clarifying what constitutes a commercial.  For example a promo for a non-children’s program is considered to be “commercial matter.”

Children’s TV Programing Compliance:  This portion of the Children’s TV report was originally due January 10th.  Because of the new rules, the report for October – November-December of 2019 will now be due March 30th.

For more information about the children’s TV reports for commercials and programming see the attached memo from our friends at Pillsbury Winthrop Shaw Pittman LLP click HERE.

Again, these documents must be filed in you on-line Public File.  Do not be late.
