Public File

The Federal Communication Commission (FCC) requires that all TV and radio stations and applicants for new stations maintain a file available for public inspection that contains documents relevant to the station’s operation. It is hoped that the public file will encourage a dialogue between broadcasters and members of the public to ensure that stations meet their obligations and remain responsive to the needs of the local community.
