Up Close Through Distance Learning: The FCC’s Regulatory Priorities


What are the regularity priorities at the FCC that should be on the radar of companies regulated by the agency?

If that’s a question you need the answers to, a Sept. 20 distance learning seminar from MFM, the Media Financial Management Association, and its BCCA subsidiary, which serves as the media industry’s credit association, should be put on your calendar now.

“There’s a New Administration in Washington — What Does It Mean for Broadcasters?” is scheduled for Wednesday, Sept. 20, from 1pm-2pm Eastern.

Leading the webinar are David Oxenford, a partner at Wilkinson Barker Knauer, and Dawn Sciarrino, managing member of Sciarrino & Shubertand a member of MFM’s board of directors.

“With a new President and a new Chairman of the FCC, regulatory priorities are changing; this session will look at the many areas where that change in administration both has and is likely to make a difference for broadcasters,” said Mary M. Collins, President/CEO of MFM and BCCA. “Thanks to the insights of communications law experts David Oxenford and Dawn Sciarrino, online seminar’s participants will learn about prospective changes in the rules limiting the common ownership of broadcast stations, the impact of the television repacking after the spectrum auction, the introduction of ATSC 3.0, and the many other paperwork burdens on broadcasters which could be affected by the new FCC and Congress.”

Eligible registered participants in the Distance Learning Seminar will also receive up to one CPE credit toward their certified public accounting (CPA) license.

MFM is registered with the National Association of State Boards of Accountancy (NASBA) as a sponsor of continuing professional education on the National Registry of CPE Sponsors.
