I sent one last night about record retention and got a reply
this morning. Why can't they give a yes/no. I guess they don't
want to be responsible. Here is their message.
The information you requested from the FCC can be found below
in the body of the email.
If you have any questions contact us at
Case Id: HD0000407732
Summary: Requirements and Retention Periods

Requirements and Retention Periods for the
Online Public Inspection Files (PIF) System
Commission's recent order did not make any changes to what is
required to be in a station's public file, and it did not
change any retention periods. Rather, the Commission's order
simply required that the public file that has historically
been kept at the station be made available online at the
are responsible for maintaining their online public file. If a
document has been replaced, a contract has expired or the
rules no longer require that a particular document be part of
the public file, the stations will be responsible for taking
appropriate action to reflect these changes. The Commission
will, however, work with broadcasters to develop, where
feasible, technological solutions to some of these maintenance
can review specific requirements and retention period
information by logging in under the Entity Sign In for their
station and navigating to the specific folder in the public
file. Requirements information will be at the beginning of the
