Initial comments on the FCC’s proposed changes to the children’s television programming requirements for TV stations were due on September 24, 2018. Numerous organizations and stations weighed in on the FCC’s proposed reforms, with broadcasters largely in full support of relaxing and revising the current requirements. Reply comments are due no later than October 23, 2018. A decision by the FCC is possible late this year, but more likely will come in the first quarter of 2019.
