INCENTIVE AUCTION TASK FORCE ANNOUNCES BROADCASTER INFORMATION SESSIONS IN FLORIDA, NORTHEAST, TEXAS,
GN Docket No. 12-268
As a part of the Commission's ongoing outreach effort to broadcasters regarding the upcoming incentive auction of television broadcast spectrum, the Incentive Auction Task Force is conducting information sessions in cities around the country between February and June to provide broadcasters with the opportunity to learn more about the auction and repacking process. The broadcaster information sessions follow the release of the updated information package, "Incentive Auction Opportunities for Broadcasters," prepared for the Commission by the investment banking firm Greenhill & Co. The schedule of visits for Florida, the Northeast, Texas, and the Midwest is set forth below. Broadcasters in markets where we have not scheduled an information session are encouraged to attend the closest session. In each city, Task Force members will hold a general session to present information and address questions on the auction and the repacking process.
Members of the Task Force will also be available to meet with individual broadcasters on a confidential basis.
Broadcasters interested in attending the general session and/or scheduling a confidential meeting should email IncentiveAuctions@fcc.gov or contact Kelly Jones at 202-418-7078 prior to the applicable information session.
Other questions may be directed to Mary Margaret Jackson, Legal Advisor to the Task Force, at MaryMargaret.Jackson@fcc.gov or 202-418-3641 or Julissa Marenco, Assistant Chief, Media Bureau, at Julissa.Marenco@fcc.gov or 202-418-0535.
