A Filing Window For Commercial Station Biennial Ownership Reports

Posted on October 4th, 2013 by

It’s a world of filing windows at the FCC, and they’ve now created one for the biennial ownership reports that commercial stations must file in 2013.  Since the reports must include information no earlier than October 1, 2013, the filing window will open that day, and will then remain open for 63 days until December 2, 2013.  All commercial broadcast stations must file a biennial report during the filing window using FCC Form 323.  

The Media Burea’s filing window public notice encourages filers to “use care in preparing” the reports and to submit them “well in advance” of the deadline.  Stations cannot submit reports on paper; they must be electronically filed.
