FCC Workshop on Re-assignment of TV Stations Post Spectrum Auction
As part of the Learn Everything About Reverse Auctions Now Program (LEARN), the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) will host a workshop September 30 from 10:00a.m. to 12:30p.m EST., the two-panel session will focus on issues surrounding the reassignment of television stations after the incentive auction authorized by Congress in the Spectrum Act of 2012.

The Act establishes a $1.75 billion TV Broadcaster Relocation Fund for the Commission to reimburse costs incurred by broadcasters who are relocated to new channels when broadcast spectrum is repacked following the auction.

In the workshop, panelists will discuss: 1) the categories of reimbursable costs broadcasters might incur as a result of the repacking; and 2) how broadcasters can coordinate among themselves to mitigate costs and ensure the most efficient transition to new frequencies.

The workshop is free and open to the public. It also will be streamed live at http://www.fcc.gov/live.
