FCC Looks For Violation Patterns

FCC Looks For Violation Patterns

The FCC is looking for patterns of enforcement violations among ownership groups since consolidation. The commission is “looking for compliance across the board,” said FCC Enforcement Bureau Chief David Solomon at NAB’s State Leadership Conference.
Solomon said the $140,000 fine levied against Peninsula Broadcasting for apparent translator violations was the largest applied to a single owner.
Another station concern, EEO was touched on. The FCC is encouraging stations to use the Internet to fulfill EEO paperwork requirements. “Some station don’t accept paper resumes,” said Susan Eid, mass media advisor to FCC Chairman Michael Powell.
