FCC To Accept Form 323 Waiver Requests From Some Transferees
June 23, 2010 at 10:42 AM (PT)
The FCC's Media Bureau will accept written requests for waiver of the biennial Form 323 ownership report filing for stations that have been assigned or transferred (with the exception of pro forma transfers of control) between NOVEMBER 1st, 2009 and TODAY (6/23). The Bureau's change reflects a concern on the part of the affected transferees that they cannot the ownership information from the previous licensees necessary to file Form 323, and/or that they will be unable to certify as to the accuracy of the information.
Licensees with pending assignment and transfer of control applications and licensees of applications filed between JUNE 23rd and JULY 8th will be required to file Form 323 on or before the JULY 8th deadline as a condition to the grant of the pending application.
