EAS 2013: Where things stand
- Originally published in www.thebdr.net

Richard Rudman, Owner, Remote Possibilities
Among the best-planned state broadcast conventions, the Texas Association of Broadcasters has a reputation for planning timely and informative sessions, which usually draw strong attendance. Among the sessions this year was a general update on the state of EAS in Texas — and nationally. My first intro to TAB years ago was through Ann Arnold, whom I consider one of my mentors in learning about the barriers to improvement of the public warning process.

FCC grants more time for 2013 commercial station ownership reports
CommLawCenter
Some time ago, the FCC released an Order extending the 2013 deadline for commercial radio and television stations — including Class A and LPTV stations — to file their biennial ownership reports with the FCC. The reports, which are normally due on Nov. 1 of odd-numbered years, must include ownership information that is accurate as of Oct. 1 of that year. Because of a more recent Order, however, the 2013 commercial ownership reports will be due on Dec. 2. Despite the delayed filing date, the FCC indicates that the reports should still contain information that was accurate as of Oct. 1.

Unhappy interns up in arms about unpaid internships
CommLawBlog
The unpaid internship. It's a rite of passage in the media industry. Every year, communications/journalism majors dust off their résumés and apply for the few highly coveted positions at newspapers, television stations, radio stations and movie studios. So highly coveted are these positions that, more often than not, the intern doesn't get paid. Oh sure, you might get some school credit, a chance to network and an extra line on your résumé — but no cash.
