We recently wrote about the proposed changes in the FCC’s rules about station-conducted contests, here.  The FCC has proposed that much of the required disclosure about the material terms of these contests be allowed to be conducted online, rather than having to be announced on-air often enough so that listeners to the station are likely to have heard such announcements.  The NPRM has now been published in the Federal Register, which sets the dates for public comment.  Comments are due February 17, 2015, and reply comments are due March 19, 2015.  Be ready to file your comments in this proceeding by the deadlines to make your life as a broadcaster at least somewhat easier.
