State Broadcasters Ask FCC to Defer Political File Posting Deadline

November 21, 2013

Starting in August 2012, the FCC required the top for network affiliated stations in the top 50 markets to post their political files online and set a July 1, 2014 date for the rest of the nation's TV stations to follow suit, pending its review of comments on how the top-50 requirement was working out.
