Radio Music Licensing Committee and SESAC Reach Agreement

SESAC and the Radio Music License Committee (RMLC) announced a new license agreement. It sets the rates payable by the majority of America’s commercial terrestrial radio stations to publicly perform works in the SESAC repertory, effective Jan. 1 2019 through Dec. 31, 2022.

SESAC represents more than 1 million songs and some 30,000 songwriters, composers and music publisher affiliates. The agreement rolls-forward the rates and terms from the prior license, which themselves were the product of an arbitration the parties conducted. This includes:

  • A blanket license fee of 0.2557% of net revenue; and
  • An All-Talk rate of 0.0575% of revenue

As before, this agreement applies to stations’ over-the-air broadcasts, simulcast streams and HD signals.
