Care and Feeding of your Public File

Presented by: David Oxenford, Wilkinson Barker Knauer LLP

Where: Online
When: Thursday, November 29 @ 1:00 PM Central
Duration: Two hours

A broadcast station’s public inspection file has never been the center of so much attention as it has been getting recently.  During the license renewal process, and as a result of FCC inspections, dozens of stations have received fines of $10,000 or more for not having paid the appropriate attention to the requirements for a complete file.  The debate over the online public file for television stations has also brought national attention to the broadcaster’s public file obligation.

This webinar will detail the obligations for station’s public files.  What documents need to be in the file?  How long must they be retained?  What are the usual trouble spots for broadcasters?  All these topics and more will be discussed in our webinar on Thursday, November 29.

Please email Mandi Heiland to register for this event.  

Registration Deadline: Friday, November 23

The BIG Money Grab:
Taking Lawyer Money from the Yellow Pages

12-12-12 @ 11:00 AM - 1:30 PM Central Time

Get your team ready for a HUGE opportunity -- maybe the biggest you've ever seen.

Lawyers are still spending in the Yellow Pages. Absolutely INCREDIBLE in the Google era. And it's about to change. The Yellow Pages is dying quickly and just one category, LAWYERS, represents a huge opportunity.

Millions are up for grabs next year. It will be a huge windfall to those who go after it. The attorney category is already big for broadcasters and it can get A LOT bigger.

BUT, this category is not a slam-dunk. It's a tough one. You need to know how to get the money.

Attorney Yellow Page Money is READY to move, IF MIssouri stations have the right sellingĀ approach!
On 12-12-12, the MBA will help you get it.

  • Where the biggest $$$ opportunities are for you in 2012. And how to get them.
  • How does an AE get an appointment with a hard to reach attorney?
  • How does an attorney get results when 10 are already advertising? (critical for renewals)
  • What ideas are working in other markets that your AE's can sell?

Satellite coordinates and website information will be sent out to you, closer to the event.
