LPFM Filing Window Delay

LPFM Filing Window Shelved till 2013

LPFM Filing Window Shelved till 2013

Previously we reported the LPFM window was expected to open before the Presidential election. This information came from several sources at the FCC at the time. Everyone one was on board for a filing in 2012. The FCC even fast tracked the proceeding.  The FCC achieved much progress in a very short period of time towards opening the window.  Recently, though, that expected time period has been extended due to several items being proposed to amend the LPFM rules. Some of the proposed changes  include  removal of the LP10 class and replacing it with a new 250 Watt class.

In addition, our FCC source informed us that some LPFM advocacy groups have requested the Commission to delay the window by as much as six months following the codification of the new LPFM rules. Their reason being, so they could more effectively advertise the opportunity to the general public.  Currently the FCC has stated they expect the filing window to open in the Spring and no later than Fall 2013. We are working with Conexus.fm LPFM advocacy to cancel or reduce this delay and will report further developments here.
