OMB 3060-0754

On July 10, 2019, the Commission adopted a Report and Order and Further Notice of Proposed Rulemaking in MB Docket Nos. 17-105 and 18-202, FCC 19-67, In the Matter of Children’s Television Programming Rules; Modernization of Media Regulation Initiative. The Report and Order revises the children’s television programming rules to provide broadcasters additional scheduling flexibility, allow broadcasters to offer more diverse and innovative educational programming, and relieve unnecessary burdens on broadcasters. Among other revisions, the Report and Order expands the Core Programming hours to 6:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m.; modifies the safe harbor processing guidelines for determining compliance with the children’s programming rules; requires that broadcast stations air the substantial majority of their Core Programming on their primary program streams, but permits broadcast stations to air up to 13 hours per quarter of regularly scheduled weekly programming on a multicast stream; eliminates the additional processing guideline applicable to stations that multicast; and modifies the rules governing preemption of Core Programming. In addition, the Report and Order revises the children’s programming reporting requirements by requiring that Children’s Television Programming Reports (FCC Form 2100, Schedule H) be filed on an annual rather than quarterly basis, within 30 days after the end of the calendar year; eliminating the requirements that the reports include information describing the educational and informational purpose of each Core Program aired during the current reporting period and each Core Program that the licensee expects to air during the next reporting period; eliminating the requirement to identify the program guide publishers who were sent information regarding the licensee’s Core Programs; and streamlining the form by eliminating certain fields. The Report and Order also eliminates the requirement to publicize the Children’s Television Programming Reports. The Report and Order directs the Media Bureau to make modifications to FCC Form 2100, Schedule H as needed to conform the form with the revisions to the children’s programming rules, including the changes to the processing guidelines and preemption policies.
