NASHVILLE, TENN.—Womble Carlyle Telecom attorney Gregg Skall was among the presenters at Radio Show 2016 in Nashville.
Skall led a Sept. 22nd discussion on “The FCC’s New Online Public File System – What’s Going on and What’s Next.”
The start date for the Federal Communications Commission’s (FCC) new online public file was June 24 for certain large market stations, and all stations must use it within two years. Skall discussed what stations must upload immediately and what deadlines loom in the future. This session was designed to provide broadcasters with management strategies for their Local Public Inspection Files by focusing on content, retention windows and duplicated document storage requirements. The session included a special emphasis on your rapidly growing political file, including a checklist to keep files lean and clean this election season.
