Media Bureau Sets Main Studio Rule Comment Deadlines


The Media Bureau has released the comment deadline and reply comment deadline, respectively for its Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) in the matter of the elimination of the FCC’s Main Studio Rule.

Officially known as “MB Docket No. 17-106,” the NPRM would eliminate the commission’s 75-year-old rules requiring each AM, FM, and television broadcast station to maintain a main studio located in or near the station’s community of license.

The Comment Deadline is July 3. 
The Reply Comment Deadline is July 17.

The FCC adopted and released the NPRM on its main studio rule on May 18.

Commenters should follow the filing instructions provided in paragraph 18 of the NPRM, the Media Bureau notes.

The NPRM is available by clicking here.
