While the upcoming 2022 primary and general elections may be dominated by Congressional races, they will also feature all statewide offices as well as numerous races for the Ohio General Assembly and local offices. To refresh our members on the applicable political broadcasting rules, the OAB will present our biennial political broadcasting webinar on Wednesday, Jan. 19, at 10 a.m.
Presented by attorneys at our FCC counsel of Brooks, Pierce, McLendon, Humphrey and Leonard, LLP, this session will discuss current issues in political broadcasting (including record keeping obligations for the political file portion of the online public file) and review the basic do’s and don’ts stations need to keep in mind as they receive requests for advertising time from—and sell time to—candidates and issue advertisers.
This session is paid for by the OAB and provided at no cost for members, but registration is required.
The latest edition of the "Nuts & Bolts of Political Broadcasting Guide" will be made available to stations prior to the webinar.
