Full power commercial and noncommercial radio, LPFM, and FM Translator stations whose communities of license are located in Colorado, Minnesota, Montana, North Dakota or South Dakota must file their license renewal applications with the FCC by December 1, 2012.
Beginning two months prior to that filing, however, full power commercial and noncommercial radio and LPFM stations must air four pre-filing announcements alerting the public to the upcoming renewal application filing. As a result, these radio stations must air the first pre-filing renewal announcement on October 1, 2012. The remaining pre-filing announcements must air once a day on October 16, November 1, and November 16, for a total of four announcements. At least two of these four announcements must air between 7:00 a.m. and 9:00 a.m. and/or 4:00 p.m. and 6:00 p.m.
