Broadcast Law Blog
FEBRUARY 17, 2019
On Friday, the FCC issued its first EEO audit of almost 300 radio and TV stations across the country (see the model audit letter and list of stations affected here ), the day after announcing its intent to abolish the Form 397 EEO Mid-Term Report (see our articles here and here ). If a station that is being audited is involved in an LMA with another broadcaster, the audit may require that the broker provide employment information as well as the licensee.
