Online Public File Requirements for NCE Radio Stations

The FCC currently requires broadcast stations to maintain a public inspection file which contains documents that must be made available on request. Next year, the FCC will require full-service non-commercial educational (“NCE”) radio stations to transition their hard copy public files to electronic files. It is not eliminating the public file requirement. This memo will help you prepare for an era in which public files will be easily accessible and mistakes easily detectable.
