begins. See Item of Note I below for additional information.

I. Applications for Renewal of License: The three-year long license renewal cycle for stations in the
radio services (AM, FM, FM Translator, and LPFM) will begin on June 1, 2019. The date by which
the licensee must file a station’s application for license renewal depends on the state or territory of
the station’s community of license. All licensees should familiarize themselves now with the dates
associated with this important filing, including the dates on which public notice announcements
must air in advance of the license renewal filing, the filing deadline itself (which is approximately
four months before the date of license expiration), and the dates on which post-filing
announcements must air. The next license renewal cycle for broadcast stations in the television
services (full-power television, Class A, TV Translator, and LPTV) will not begin again until June
1, 2020.
