Due to Irene, FCC Extends the Deadline to File Comments on LPFMs, Translators

The FCC will be setting down rules for granting new FM licenses in some of the largest markets, pursuant to the 2010 Local Community Radio Act. The original deadline for comments in the Third Further Notice of Proposed Rulemaking was Aug. 29, but the Commission, shaking off its own experiences with Hurricane Irene, granted a request to extend that by a week. Comments in Docket 07-172 are now due on Sept. 6, with reply comments due Sept. 20.
