- Radio Stations in Michigan and Ohio
- Television Stations in Arizona, Idaho, Maryland, Nevada, New Mexico, Utah, Virginia, West Virginia and Wyoming, as well as the District of Columbia
Just a reminder that by June 1, 2008, radio stations in Michigan and Ohio, and television stations in Arizona, Idaho, Maryland, Nevada, New Mexico, Utah, Virginia, West Virginia and Wyoming, as well as the District of Columbia, must prepare and file electronically an FCC Form 323 Biennial Ownership Report with the Federal Communications Commission (FCC). Similarly, noncommercial stations in these states must file a Biennial Ownership Report on FCC Form 323-E by that date.
Ownership Reports are to be filed every other year, reporting on changes in the licensee’s ownership and updating the information requested by the form. Ownership information must be provided for all attributable owners of the licensee. The timing for the filing of the Biennial Ownership Report and the preparation of the Annual EEO Public File Report is based on the anniversary of the filing of the station’s license renewal. In turn, the renewal cycles are organized by state and type of service, and are staggered based on the FCC’s prearranged schedule. Periodically, we will remind groups of stations as to their upcoming deadlines, and stations should be vigilant to make these required filings. A copy of our complete reminder memo containing additional information on this filing deadline can be found here.
