FMC Comments to FCC in Fourth Further Notice on LPFM
Commission seeks public input on rulemaking for the implementation of Low Power FM service
FMC fully supports the promulgation of rules that allow for an increased number of LPFM stations as well as more diverse, original programming at those stations. Additionally, we assert that careful attention should be paid to how these stations are utilized, and whether they are helping to foster local culture and community engagement. From our perspective, this goal is at the heart of the Commission’s own work around LPFM — from the initial conception of how to best utilize these frequencies to provide true local radio to the present Notice.
This filing builds on ongoing work by FMC to ensure a more vibrant, accessible radio landscape for musicians.
