With a new administration and new leadership at the FCC, changes are in the wind that will affect every broadcaster in every market.
Are you ready for them?
After more than a decade of inertia and with new leadership at the helm, the FCC is poised to take quick action to reassert itself as the regulator of the broadcast industry. How will this affect the Hispanic broadcast community?
FCC Commissioner Michael O’Rielly argues that social media and other non-broadcast or newspaper entertainment and information providers are true participants within the market and opposes any increased ownership regulations or restrictions.
How will changes to the duopoly rules affect you? Will easing restrictions benefit smaller players, or will it squeeze niche broadcasters out of the mix? How will a change in policy regarding net neutrality impact local markets and smaller broadcast companies’ digital content delivery?
O’Rielly, a champion of local broadcasters and underrepresented populations, will address these concerns and more at the Radio Ink Hispanic Radio Conference. It’s a discussion no radio owner or manager can afford to miss.
A graduate of the University of Rochester, O’Rielly served as a policy adviser in the Office of the Senate Republican Whip before joining the FCC. He is an experienced policy analyst and has worked on banking, technology, transportation, trade, and commerce issues for the U.S. Senate Republican Policy Committee. O’Rielly was nominated to the FCC by President Obama and confirmed unanimously by the United States Senate in 2013. He was sworn into office for a new term in January 2015.
