REC announcement regarding LPFM filing window Show of Interest requests

We are currently handling potential applicants in various stages.  Please make sure that when you send email to REC, that you either reply to an email that we sent you or you at least include your 4-digit ticket number in the subject line.  That way your email is properly routed within REC.   Many delays in responses are caused by folks who are starting new emails to us instead of replying to one of the emails we sent you.

LPFM Filing Window: Updated Conflict of Interest Policy for new window filers & existing LPFM stations

Effective July 22, 2023

In this announcement, we are updating our Third Generation Filing Window Conflict Of Interest (COI) policy to address the current trends of the Show of Interest requests that we are receiving.  In addition, we need to clarify how the concept of how COI would apply to existing broadcast stations seeking services from REC Networks.  The general objective of a COI policy is to assure that REC will not put two LPFM applicants into a situation where they will be competing against each other in the window.
