For Immediate Attention
As we have previously advised, on March 3, the FCC released a Report and Order outlining new requirements imposed on full-power television stations for educating consumers about the February 17, 2009 transition to digital television service. On March 28, the FCC released a Public Notice announcing that it had received the necessary approvals from the OMB and that the new rules, including reporting requirements, would become effective on Monday, March 31, 2008. As a result of that announcement, full-power television stations must file with the FCC their first FCC Form 388 quarterly report by April 10, 2008. The form must also be placed in the station’s Public Inspection File.
