Broadcast Station EEO Audit Responses Due May 5th

Posted on April 27th, 2022 by

For stations on the FCC’s March 21, 2022 EEO audit list, the deadline to respond is May 5, 2022.   The notice and list of stations can be found here.

Stations no longer mail documents to the FCC to respond to EEO audits – an upload to the station public file by the deadline is sufficient. Following that, the Bureau staff review the submissions and either ask for more information or issue an “all clear” letter to the station.  Stations on the list are required to post the audit letter, response, and later correspondence in the EEO Audits folder of the public file.

If your station is on the list, and you need more time to respond, the FCC routinely grants extensions. Extensions can be requested via the FCC email contact on the audit letter.
