TV Auction 112 Update

Posted on March 31st, 2022 by

The short-form application deadline of March 30th has now passed for entities interested in bidding on 27 full power television station construction permits.  The FCC’s TV Auction 112 Public Notice provides additional details about the auction and related procedures.

The FCC will next issue a public notice announcing those applicants whose short form applications are approved as complete, or those with errors that require correction.  We expect that notice within the next 2-3 weeks.  Following that, upfront payments via wire transfer are due no later than May 6, 2022 at 6:00 p.m. ET.  Untimely upfront payments will disqualify an applicant from participation.  The auction begins June 7, 2022.
