FCC Approves Contest Rules Update
September 17, 2015 at 8:41 AM (PT)
As expected, the FCC approved changes in its rules regarding contest rule disclosure, amending the regulations to allow stations to choose to post the rules online rather than air them in their entirety. The changes were approved at TODAY's open meeting (9/17).
In response to the FCC's move, NAB EVP/Communications DENNIS WHARTON said, "NAB applauds the FCC for updating its contest rules to better reflect today’s media environment. Providing flexibility about where and how contest rules can be posted online allows broadcasters to best serve our audiences based on the wide variety of contests we run. NAB looks forward to working collaboratively with the FCC to help radio and TV stations adhere to these revised rules."
