  • Federal Communications Commission reaches 1.13 Million Dollars Settlement with Scripps on Monitoring of TV Tower Lighting

    Federal Communications Commission reaches $1.13 Million Settlement with Scripps on Monitoring of TV Tower Lighting| site |



    (January 13, 2020) - - Today, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) provided the following information: WASHINGTON, January 13, 2019—The Federal Communications Commission’s Enforcement Bureau today announced an agreement with Scripps Broadcasting Holdings to settle an investigation into the monitoring practices of lights on television towers it acquired earlier this year from Cordillera Communications. Scripps has agreed to resolve the Bureau’s investigation by paying a $1,130,000 penalty and abiding by a compliance plan to prevent further violations. Consistent monitoring of tower lighting systems is an important aviation safety issue and potentially a life-saving measure, as it ensures that owners quickly learn of—and can correct—malfunctioning obstruction lights.

    Federal Communications Commission Proposes designating 988 as National Suicide Prevention and Mental Health Hotline Number | site |



    Agency Begins Formal Rulemaking, Seeks Comment on Proposal


    WASHINGTON, December 12, 2019—The Federal Communications Commission today started the process of designating 988 as a new, nationwide, 3-digit number for a suicide prevention and mental health crisis hotline. This designation will help ease access to crisis services, reduce the stigma surrounding suicide and mental health conditions, and ultimately save lives. Today’s Notice of Proposed Rulemaking proposes that calls made to 988 would be directed to the existing National Suicide Prevention Lifeline, a national network of 163 crisis centers that is funded by the Department of Health and Human Services’ Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA). Currently, the Lifeline is available by calling 1-800-273-TALK and through ...

It will include 17,638 numbers in the 833 toll free code for which there have been competing requests. Many of these numbers are easy to remember, such as 833-FLOWERS or 833-333-3333. The 833 auction will serve as an experiment in using competitive bidding to assign toll free numbers and ensure that sought-after numbers are awarded to the parties that value them most. Currently, most toll free numbers are assigned on a first-come, first-served basis, a system that does not factor in the need for or value of a number. The FCC will use th...

    Remarks of Federal Communications Commission (FCC) Commissioner Mignon L. Clyburn (as prepared for delivery)

    “Net Neutrality and the Fight for Our Digital Rights” The Voices for Internet Freedom Coalition





    Washington, DC - - (February 27, 2017) - -


    Thank you Steven, for the wonderful introduction. It is great to be part of today’s conversation on net neutrality, or as I prefer to call it, the “open internet.”

    So what do Title II reclassification, broad forbearance authority, and interconnection have in common? Before you start to doze, let me quickly say, that while these are all concepts contained in the FCC’s 2015 Open Internet Order, this is not how people outside the halls of the FCC and Communications Bar, generally talk about their experiences online, or with their broadband service providers. Yet this regulatory minutia is exactly what consumes those of us in D.C. and in academia when it comes

  • Statement of Federal Communications Commission Commissioner Michael O'Rielly on Commission Consideration of Broadband Privacy Interim Stay Order

    Statement of Federal Communications Commission Commissioner Michael O'Rielly on Commission Consideration of Broadband Privacy Interim Stay Order



    Washington, DC - - (February 27, 2017) - - “As I indicated in my dissenting statement when the previous Commission adopted these rules, I believe they are fatally flawed from the standpoints of both statutory authority and public policy. I support the Chairman's proposal to allow the Commission and Congress time to take another look at these ill-considered rules before they have a chance to throw broadband providers' data security practices into unsettled territory.” “Additionally, I support the Chairman's decision to give Commissioners a chance to weigh in here in a process similar to that I proposed in a recent blog post. Agree or disagree with the underlying proposal, everyone should commend the Chairman's move away from the delegated authority abuses we have seen in the past, toward more input from Commis
