FCC: Form 398 Children’s TV Reports Must Be Filed in New LMS System

According to the Broadcast Law Blog, the FCC announced that all Form 398 Quarterly Children’s Television reports must be filed in the new Licensing and Management System (LMS) starting March 31. The FCC is migrating all TV broadcast filings to this new system, and the next Form 398, due by April 10, must be filed in this system.  While LMS has been available for stations to use for these reports since last June, beginning with the reports due in April, no more reports can be filed in the FCC’s old KidVid Filing System. Children’s Television reports need to be maintained in the public file for the entire license term and only removed from the file after the next license renewal is granted.
