Regulatory Reminder:  Lowest Unit Charge Period Begins Saturday, March 29, 2014

Federal regulations require broadcast stations, during the 45 days preceding a primary election, to charge a candidate for any public office “no more per unit than the station charges its most favored commercial advertisers for the same classes and amounts of time for the same periods.”  

The date of the May 13 Nebraska primary means the lowest unit charge period begins Saturday, March 29.

In considering rates and sales practices, be mindful that, under the rules, “Any station practices offered to commercial advertisers that enhance the value of advertising spots must be disclosed and made available to candidates on equal terms. Such practices include but are not limited to any discount privileges that affect the value of advertising, such as bonus spots, time-sensitive make goods, preemption priorities, or any other factors that enhance the value of the announcement.”
