Chief Operator Responsibilites – do you know what they are?

Make sure you know what is required of chief operators by attending this Webinar by SBE on October 17.  Dennis Baldridge, CPBE, AMD, 8-VSB, CBNT is presenting this imperative webinar.  He will review administrative and technical responsibilities, communication requirements and more.  In addition, he will help you understand the FCC Rules and Regulations, so you are better equipped to serve your facility. For instance, did you know each station should appoint an alternate chief operator?  Review the FCC regulation below:

73 . 1870  Chief Operators.
(a) The licensee of each AM, FM, TV or Class A TV broadcast station must designate a person to serve as the station’s chief operator. At times when the chief operator is unavailable or unable to act (e.g., vacations, sickness), the licensee shall designate another person as the acting chief operator on a temporary basis.

This webinar is $49 for members of the SBE and $69 for non-members.  Sign up today!

  1. I am trying to find language in the FCC rules that state the requirement that a radio station not only have a designated Chief Operator, but also an alternate Chief Operator.
