Political Broadcasting Webinar

September 13, 2016 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm MDT

Election Year Special:  Underwriting With Candidates, Campaigns, and PACs

In an election year, there are special issues that can arise with the FCC and the FEC, as well as the IRS.  You may be wondering if you can air underwriting by political candidates or spots by PACs.  You may want more clarity about what “Citizens United” really means for your station.  And what happens if you goof up?

This webinar will provide answers and guidance from John Crigler, NFCB counsel, and Brad Deutsch, who serves as lead outside counsel to the Bernie Sanders campaign.  John and Brad will discuss the broadcast of interviews and debates, equal opportunity and anti-censorship requirements, off-air and online political activities by the station or its management, as well as the most important questions of all – the ones you want to ask!

Members of NFCB can register HERE.
