The REC Pledge List shows LPFM stations from the 2013 LPFM window that obtained their original construction permits by using their comparative review points to eliminate one or more mutually exclsive applicant. These applicants are subject to their pledges to staff a main studio for at least 20 hours per week and to carry at least 8 hours of local programming per day.
