UPDATED: With the FCC Reopen, Many Broadcast Filings Are Due Immediately

January 28, 2019

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC or Commission) is providing broadcasters and other Commission licensees with an additional day to complete their post-shutdown filings. This afternoon, the FCC announced that the deadlines for all filings that would have been due from January 3, 2019 through January 29, 2019, are now extended until January 30, 2019 (other than filings related to spectrum auction activities, which are not extended).

The FCC also indicated that it will “soon” issue further guidance on revised filing deadlines.
