FCC Revises Children’s Programming Rules for Broadcasters

July 31, 2019

By Variety

The FCC on Wednesday voted to revise some of the obligations that broadcast TV stations have to carry informational and educational programming for children.

The changes, adopted on a 3-2 vote, reflect the push by broadcasters to loosen the obligations established under the landmark Children’s Television Act in 1990, which established a detailed set of regulations that broadcasters have to comply with in order to retain their licenses from the FCC. The FCC also issued a notice of proposed rulemaking to study other adjustments — what FCC described as effort to “modernize” — to the rules.
