Indiana’s Washington, D.C. counsel David Oxenford is leading a November 29 webinar for broadcasters throughout the country to make sure that broadcasters are aware of what the FCC will be watching during the upcoming political season.
With a Presidential election, elections that could flip control of the U.S. House and Senate, and many local elections, there are predictions that 2024 will be the biggest year ever for political advertising. Already we are seeing many ads for candidates for elections in 2024, and we are already seeing disputes over the content of those ads.
Are you up to date on all the FCC rules that govern your sale of political ads? Do you know who you must sell political ads to, the rates that you can charge, and all the paperwork that is required – including the latest on the Online Political Inspection File?
AT 1:00PM Eastern on the Wednesday after Thanksgiving, November 29, the staff of the FCC’s Office of Political Programming – Bobby Baker, Gary Schonman and Sima Nilsson – will join Oxenford to provide a refresher on the rules that you need to know to prepare for the 2024 election season.
Registration is now open for this webinar will also highlight the potential issues that may arise with political candidates and issue advertisers on your stations:.
