FCC and CPB Public Inspection Files
Public inspection files are a requirement of the Federal Communications Commission. All existing TV and radio stations in the US, and all applicants for new broadcast stations, are required to keep certain documents relating to the station’s operation and ownership in a file, in a place where members of the public may have free access to it. These files may be maintained on a computer database accessible to the public, or as paper files, which are usually kept at the main studio of the station in question, or elsewhere in the community of license, such as the local public library.
CPB Public Inspection Files
MPR|APM receives funding from the Corporation for Public Broadcasting for various projects. As a participant in the CPB grant program, MPR|APM is required to make certain information available to the public.
