June 8, 2006 at 6:27 AM (PT)
CLEAR CHANNEL RADIO has successfully launched the ELECTRONIC PUBLIC INSPECTION FILE (E-PIF) system, ensuring and certifying compliance with FCC Public File rules. The system allows stations to easily maintain the documents, and make them available for on-demand public viewing.
“Every radio station manager knows that protecting the license is their first priority” said JEFF LITTLEJOHN, CLEAR CHANNEL RADIO EVP/Distribution Development. “With E-PIF, we now have proven technology that provides an efficient way to support our stations in their review and maintenance of public inspection files for completeness and accuracy. Documents can be added locally or remotely to a station, a market or the entire company with a few clicks and automatic emails remind us of upcoming deadlines.”
The public is provided undisturbed access to the files, and the ability to print files from individual kiosk machines located at CLEAR CHANNEL main studios. CLEAR CHANNEL RADIO plans to offer the system to non-CLEAR CHANNEL stations later this year as part of the VIERO product suite, LAN INTERNATIONAL’s flagship enterprise technology offering for broadcasters. CLEAR CHANNEL currently also offers six business solutions to the industry, and has begun providing original audio programming to competing radio companies through its Format Lab.
