FCC’s Copps announces town meetings on broadcast license renewal

FCC Commissioner Michael Copps will hold a series of town meetings to give concerned citizens the opportunity to express their views on whether their local radio and television stations are serving the public interest and should have their licenses renewed.

“As part of the license renewal process, I believe it is important to go out and hear from members of the community,” Copps said. “But that hasn’t happened for years. It’s time for that to change. As we begin the next round of license renewals for radio this fall and for television in 2004, I intend to hold a series of town meetings in regions where renewals are due in order to hear from communities how their airwaves are being used.”

No dates or locations for the hearings were provided.
