FCC reaches out to state broadcasting groups for spectrum webinars

The Federal Communications Commission has sent invitations to webinars on spectrum auction to 15 state broadcast associations, reports the CommLaw Blog. The notice says that FCC Media Bureau Chief Bill Lake and Rebecca Hanson, senior adviser on broadcast spectrum, will describe "the financial opportunities offered by voluntary incentive auctions, as proposed in the FCC’s National Broadband Plan." They'll also discuss "new business model options" that stem from voluntary spectrum givebacks. The Virginia Broadcasting Association announced stations there may take part March 17. No other details are available, the blog noted.
