By Dru Sefton

Lonna Thompson, e.v.p., Association of Public Television Stations, is a panelist on the FCC’s Sept. 30 workshop on issues surrounding the reassignment of television stations after the upcoming broadcast spectrum incentive auctions. The workshop will be streamed live on the FCC website from 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Eastern.

Panelists will discuss reimbursement costs that broadcasters may incur as a result of spectrum repacking, and how broadcasters might coordinate efforts to mitigate those costs.

The Spectrum Act of 2012 provides a $1.75 billion relocation fund for the FCC to reimburse stations for costs associated with spectrum repacking.
