FCC clarifies rules regarding on-air renewal announcements for LPFM stations

LPFM stations are NOT required to make pre-filing and post-filing announcements. This was verified on March 27, 2019 by a Media Bureau attorney at the FCC. In full-service rules, public notice announcements such as the pre and post filing announcements are in §73.3580 of the rules. This rule does not appear in §73.801 as also applying to LPFM stations. If you wish to go ahead and make the announcements, you can do so at your own option.
