Radio and television broadcast stations are required to apply for license renewals to the Federal Communications Communication (FCC) every eight years. Failure to do so could lead to thorny regulatory problems which include the possibility of the loss of your license. Now that broadcast stations are well into the license renewal cycle the Knowledge Group has assembled a panel of experts to discuss the most significant issues surrounding license renewal for broadcast stations and what they have learned thus far. Along with practical guidance and best practices, a live Q&A session is also included in this event.
