FCC eliminates requirement to post station license

Today, the FCC has issued a Report and Order eliminating the requirement that broadcast stations (including LPFM stations) post a copy of their station license at the control point or transmitter of the station. The FCC cites the ability to view license authorizations online. The rule changes will take effect when this is published in the Federal Register.

Just a reminder to all LPFM stations that by participating in the LPFM Voluntary Public Inspection File program, you can provide a link for your listeners to not only your license document but also to other information about your station including files you can add to demonstrate that your station is a stakeholder in your community. There is no charge to participate. Visit https://lpfm.ws to start. This is voluntary.
