At least that’ll be the case for the Open Meeting portion of FCC operations. Next Thursday 3/5/09, the three sitting commissioners will hear about and weigh in on the new 6/12/09 deadline and the just-executed 2/17/09 mini-transition. As was the last time, a panel of key FCC personnel, outside experts and stakeholders will be on hand to discuss the matter – the identity of the panel will be released ahead of the meeting. It’s pegged for a 9:30 AM Eastern kick-off.
RBR/TVBR observation: The mini-transition seemed to go very well for the most part – there is virtually no media chatter on the topic, which is an excellent sign. Now if only radio can figure out a way to get this much free publicity for a digital conversion.
