WBK Webinar | FCC Issues for Broadcasters During the Pandemic

While the FCC building is virtually empty, the Commission continues to operate during the pandemic. In fact, it has issued a number of rulings designed to help broadcasters during the current crisis while continuing to churn out its routine work. On Tuesday, April 21, WBK presented a free webinar with David Oxenford to discuss what broadcasters need to know about what the FCC is doing during the pandemic.

Questions that were addressed include:

– Can I still contact the FCC, and will they still act on my applications?
– How does the pandemic affect FCC filing deadlines and the public file obligations?
– As the FCC provided any relief for broadcasters?
– What was that political broadcasting ruling last week?
– FCC issues you should be considering if you are working remotely
– What other actions of importance to broadcasters has the FCC taken in the last few weeks?
