FCC Extends Certain FilingDeadlines


Washington - Mar 31, 2004 - The FCC's Media Bureau has allowed a two-week extension, until April 15, 2004, for the filing of the following forms for radio stations in Indiana, Kentucky and Tennessee:

  • FCC Form 303-S - Application for Renewal of Broadcast Station Licenses.

  • FCC Form 396 - Broadcast Equal Employment Opportunity Report.

  • FCC Forms 323/323E - License Renewal Ownership Report. Commercial and noncommercial educational radio stations.

    Recently, Consolidated Database System (CDBS) users have experienced electronic filing difficulties. During the past several weeks computer difficulties also have caused system outages. This filing extension will provide a reasonable opportunity for affected licensees and CDBS users to timely file these forms.

    A petition to deny an Indiana, Kentucky or Tennessee radio station license renewal application filed after April 1, 2004, will be due 90 days from the release of the public notice accepting for filing the renewal application. Some applicants, permittees and licensees may have experienced difficulties in timely filing amendments, settlements and contracts. The bureau will waive these requirements in appropriate circumstances.

    For further information, contact the FCC Audio Division at 202-418-2700.
