          CCB Pledges to Keep Current on the Latest interpretations of FCC Policy for our Clients

CCB said the FCC was “tweaking” REN (the License Renewal) the process but we are wrong!  Everything has changed since the last renewal cycle eight years ago! The FCC is switching renewals from CDBS to the new License Management System. 

LMS Form 2100, Schedule 303-S, contains dozens of pages of complex, confusing “government-ese”. The FCC estimates the “paperwork burden” of the renewal process ranges from 1.25 to 12 hours. Christian Community Broadcasters (CCB) is your “go-to” expert on both the obvious and the obscure aspects of LPFM radio renewals in your state and nationally.  

In an earlier renewal cycle, one LPFM decided to do its own filing. They made a small, but fatal, mistake that could have been corrected in a minute.  Two years later the FCC notified the station that it was operating without a license and ordered it to “cease broadcasting immediately.”  Rather than appealing the decision and face a fine that could have exceeded $3,000, the station complied.
