ELECTION SEASON IS COMING!
Be Prepared for the Upcoming Elections
Get the latest information on Political Advertising “Do’s and Don’ts.”
Join the IBA’s Washington, DC attorney David Oxenford of the Wilkinson Barker Knauer law firm for a refresher course on broadcasters’ political broadcasting obligations. In a time of claims about “fake news” and election meddling, as well as an online political file that can be reviewed from anywhere at any time, making sure that you understand and follow the FCC’s rules about political broadcasting and issue advertising has never been more important. And, of course, it is past time to be thinking about lowest unit rate calculations as advertising contracts you are selling now will affect the rates that Presidential candidates will be paying during the political window for the caucuses, a window which opens in December of this year!
The IBA’s Political Advertising Webinar is Thursday, July 25, 2019 at 2pm CDT. Details on how to participate in this webinar are here.
The next year and a half may be the most active political advertising period in our state’s history with the Presidential caucuses on February 3, 2020, primaries for US Congress (including a US Senate seat that will be contested) and state offices on June 2, and the general election on November 3. Start planning now, as decisions you make now will affect your political broadcasting obligations to candidates and issue advertisers for each of these upcoming elections.
