WOMB Political File.
WOMB 89.9 FM will not grant requests to purchase broadcast time for
Political Candidates, nor will we grant any free time to Political Candidates!!!
Stations must keep a file which contains “a complete record of a request to purchase broadcast time that:
(A) is made by or on behalf of a legally qualified candidate for public office; or
(B) communicates a message relating to any political matter of national importance, including:
(i) a legally qualified candidate;
(ii) any election to federal office; or
(iii) a national legislative issue of public importance.”
The file must identify how the station responded to such requests and, if the request was granted, the charges made, a schedule of time purchased, the times the spots actually aired, the rates charged, and the classes of time purchased.
The file also must reflect any free time provided to a candidate.
The station must keep the political records in the file for two years after the spot airs.
