Register now for the MBA’s FCC Alternative Inspection Program. Inspections begin in mid-April. Stations that successfully pass the program are exempted from FCC inspections for a three-year period except for targeted regional enforcement initiatives or in response to a complaint. During the last ABIP cycle in 2014, more than 200 Minnesota radio and TV stations participated. This is an excellent opportunity to check compliance with FCC Rules, and the experienced inspectors are dedicated to making the process educational for station management and staff.
