Logs Aren't Lists, So FCC Fines Long Island Noncommercial Station
March 11, 2015 at 11:52 AM (PT)
The FCC has proposed a $10,000 fine against PECONIC PUBLIC BROADCASTING for public file violations at noncommercial WPPB/SOUTHAMPTON, LONG ISLAND, NY.
The licensee disclosed in its license renewal application that 13 quarterly issues/programs lists were in the form of program logs and not lists. The logs were available to the public in a timely manner, but the fact that they were not in the prescribed list form led to the fine.
