Licenses renewed. Link goes to a summary of renewal results for all stations currently classified as must carry services.
As happens often these days, here I am putting this up just before the deadline.
AMI’s broadcast licenses are up for renewal next August, and part of the process of making sure AMI stays available to all involves getting letters of support.
We don’t watch it all the time, but it is a place for programming that might not find a home otherwise. Plus, it’s kind of cool to go there and know that whatever is playing is described, and if it weren’t for AMI, we wouldn’t have all those commercials about described video which, although some of them are ridiculous, make a point and get people talking more. Yes, I’m looking at you, bacon/rainforest commercial.
If you want to add a letter of support, submit it via this comment form. Check the box for AMI, fill out all the required fields, attach any files if you’re that keen and hit submit. It doesn’t look like there are any mean CAPTCHAs lying in wait.
The deadline is Friday, so hurry hurry hurry!
