One Page Broadcast Station Local Public File Checklists for 2013
American Samoa, Guam & Mariana Islands stations are on the same schedule as Alaska
IMPORTANT TELEVISION STATION NOTE: On and after August 2, 2012, all full-power television broadcasters must upload new public file documents to the Commission's Online Public Inspection File. Except for the political file, broadcasters will have six months after August 2, 2012, to upload public file documents that were in the file prior to August 2, 2012. In the case of the political file, only broadcasters affiliated with the top four national television broadcast networks in the top 50 DMAs are required to upload their political files beginning on August 2, 2012, and must do so only on a going-forward basis. No pre-August 2, 2012 political files need to be uploaded. All other TV broadcasters will begin to upload new political files on July 1, 2014, and will be exempt from uploading any documents already in their political files on that date. The One Page Broadcast Station Local Public File Checklists above describe materials that are required to be in TV station local public files without regard to and without reference to whether the material is to be kept locally or in the Commission's Online Public Inspection File. For more information, see TV Station Profiles & Public Inspection Files.
