On July 10, 2019, the Commission adopted a Report and Order in MB Docket Nos. 18-202 and 17-105, FCC 19-67, Children’s Television Programming Rules; Modernization of Media Regulation Initiative. Under the Children’s Television Act of 1990 (CTA), the Commission is required to consider, in its review of television license renewals, the extent to which the licensee “has served the educational and informational needs of children through the licensee’s overall programming, including programming specifically designed to serve such needs.” The Commission initially adopted rules implementing the CTA in 1991, and revised these rules in 1996, 2004, and 2006. The Report and Order modernizes the children’s television programming rules in light of the changes to the media landscape that have occurred since the children’s television programming rules were first adopted to provide broadcasters additional scheduling flexibility, allow broadcasters to offer more diverse and innovative educational programming, and relieve unnecessary burdens on broadcasters.
