NYSBA to Host Zoom Webinar on Political File on Wednesday August 19th – 1 PM Eastern 

A few weeks ago the FCC entered into consent decrees with six of the largest radio groups in the country regarding errors in their political files.  There has been a growing concern that many stations may not be in compliance with the Commission’s on-line political file rules. You can expect the FCC to continue monitoring stations.

This webinar is free for NYSBA members in good standing and features the FCC’s team that oversees the on-line political file rules. They will discuss the steps needed to comply with the rules, the impact on a station’s renewal and the FCC’s new consent decree process.  The panel will take Q& A’s from participants. It will be archived.
