FCC fees due in about a week


If you are reading this on Tuesday, September 6, 2011, you have eight days to get your cash in to the FCC to keep your broadcast license in good order and avoid a late fee. The deadline for payment is 9/14/11.

There is nothing unusual about this fact, but like broadcasters who neglect to file for a license renewal in a timely manner, or forget to put required information in the public file, we suspect that somebody out there is on the path to miss this deadline. If this reminder saves one of our readers from paying one extra penny to the FCC, it will have done its job.

This link will take you to RBR-TVBR’s latest article on the topic, which in turn will take you to ample FCC information on the topic should you need a memory refresher.
