FCC’s proposed “Localism NPRM” would require stations to maintain a local studio and local programming! Read the Catholic Radio Association’s Legal Response

A change under consideration at the FCC – “Localism NPRM” – would require stations to maintain a local, staffed studio within their community, create community advisory boards and require a certain amount of locally produced programming. The Catholic Radio Association’s legal response to the FCC proposal is here.  What impact would this have on Catholic Radio?

    I see no problem with insisting that Catholic Radio grow up and start acting like real radio stations. I have worked with a number of Catholic Stations and the assumptions I’ve always worked under are that there be local staff, a community advisory board, and move to produce local programming as soon as possible (among other things).

    Frankly, if the community will not support a Catholic Station by providing the financial means to become a real station – then let them listen to EWTN on the internet or via podcast.

    This is ultimately the imposition of the so-called “Fairness Doctrine” designed to dilute radio content and radio’s impact in particlular arenas of interest. This is govenment tyranny and must be resisted at all costs. This is a call to action. Those that support EWTN have no problem with the current format. It is those who dislike the CONTENT of EWTN that support such govenement doctrins as “localism” and others that regulate and dircectly assault constitutional rights to ‘Freedom of Speech”, religious freedom and the freedom to gather.
