The National Religious Broadcasters took note of the holiday season and sent a letter to the FCC asking for reform of the ban on noncommercial stations fundraising for third-party charities.
Currently, unless a special waiver is issued, the practice is banned but in a letter from NRB President and CEO Dr. Jerry A. Johnson, the group asked the FCC to “to complete the rulemaking process in this worthwhile effort.”
The letter added, “I respectfully suggest that such action to aid the charitable nature of many Americans would be particularly appropriate and significant at the FCC’s Open Meeting in December, a time of year when many Americans are particularly mindful of giving opportunities and community needs.”
