There is a new FCC under the leadership of Chairman Ajit Pai, which now has to deal with the many legal issues facing broadcasters. While we try on this Blog to keep on top of these issues, we can’t always address everything that is happening. But we try to hit the highlights. Each quarter, my partner David O’Connor and I update a list of the legal and regulatory issues facing TV broadcasters. That list of issues is published by TVNewsCheck and is available on their website, here. Our latest update was published today, and provides a summary of the status of legal and regulatory issues ranging from the adoption of the ATSC 3.0 standard at one end of the alphabet to White Spaces and Wireless Microphones on the other – with summaries of other issues including the Incentive Auction, EEO compliance, Political Advertising and Sponsorship Identification, along with dozens of other topics, many with links to our more detailed discussions here on the Blog. Of course, these issues change almost daily, as on Friday, after we completed this article, the FCC made two announcements on the Incentive Auction, setting the process for the post-Auction repacking of the TV spectrum, and outlining what happens next for TV broadcasters. While we will try to summarize those actions soon, their release demonstrates how quickly things change. Also, on Friday, the FCC’s list of matters on circulation before the Commissioners (the orders drafted by the Commission’s staff, pending for consideration and votes by the Commissioners) removed a number of orders from the list of pending items, including those dealing with retransmission consent and video description – presumably as these will not be acted on by the new FCC. If you are trying to keep on top of all the other legal and regulatory issues TV broadcasters should be considering, or if you are looking for the current status of specific proceedings potentially impacting TV broadcasters, check out our most recent updated summary, here. And watch for our predictions of what will be coming from Washington in the coming year for both radio and TV broadcasters in the next few days.
