The next FCC Localism Task Force hearing will be held July 21 in Monterey, CA, at the Monterey Conference Center.

The hearing will gather information from consumers, industry, civic organizations and others on broadcasters’ service to their local communities. Besides gathering information, the hearing will focus on outreach for the ongoing nationwide round of broadcast station license renewals.

Designated speakers will include representatives from consumer and advocacy groups as well as broadcasters. The hearing format will enable members of the public to participate via an open microphone session.

A live audio webcast of the proceeding will be available on the FCC’s Web site.
