Washington Regulatory Issues for 2019

This may be a big year for regulatory issues for radio. The FCC is considering changes to the radio ownership rules. The Copyright Royalty Board will be beginning a proceeding to review the royalty rates for streaming – just as streaming demands increase because of the proliferation of smart speakers. And, just over a year from now, on June 1, 2020, Michigan radio stations will be filing license renewal applications where the FCC will be reviewing a station’s online public file to insure regulatory compliance. Come hear the latest on these and other issues in this session conducted by MAB Hotline attorney, David Oxenford.
