NAB Statement on FCC Approval of License Application Filing Order

WASHINGTON, D.C. – In response to the FCC's approval of an order that would modernize and simplify the written and on-air public notices broadcasters must provide upon the filing of certain applications, the following statement can be attributed to NAB Senior Vice President of Communications Ann Marie Cumming:

“NAB thanks the FCC for unanimously approving the simplification of rules governing broadcasters’ public notice of license renewals and modifications. Today’s vote will help bring the licensing process for local radio and TV stations into the modern age. Local broadcasters appreciate the efforts of Chairman Pai and the FCC to modernize archaic rules and ease outdated regulatory burdens.”
