COVID-19 – FCC Waives Kid Vid Preemption Rules through April 30th

The FCC’s Kid Vid rules require that any preempted kids programs must be rescheduled. There are exceptions for programs such as late breaking news.  The FCC has expanded the list of exempted programs “if the purpose of the preemption is to encourage compliance with the CDC’s COVID-19 guidance and government efforts to limit gatherings and promote social distancing by broadcasting live or same-day tape delayed locally produced community events, including religious services.”  This limited waiver will apply to programs preempted through April 30th.

The FCC’s Public Notice can be found HERE.
