RMLC Responds To SESAC Discount Offer


Late last week, the Radio Music License Committee (RMLC) learned that RMLC-represented stations were awarded a more-than-60% discount off of the SESAC radio station license rate card. The substantial fee reduction applies for the license period January 1, 2016 through December 31, 2018.

The RMLC points out that SESAC had offered stations that chose not to arbitrate only a 5% discount. “In contrast, many of the RMLC-Represented Stations that chose to participate in the arbitration, and that overpaid SESAC on an interim basis since 2016, will now receive a combined credit worth tens of millions of dollars,” the RMLC says.
