Radio Doesn’t Want Online Public Files

August 29, 2014

Saying radio draws from a more local pool than TV does for its advertising, some broadcasters are questioning why the FCC wants to extend the obligation to post public files online, as television does, to radio.

LeSEA Broadcasting Corp. owns both radio and TV properties and has experienced the “problems and pitfalls” with the FCC’s system, which went online in August 2012. In comments filed on the topic with the commission, LeSEA says the agency should address whether requiring radio to post their public files online would really benefit that station’s audience and consider the burdens on licensees.
