ABA cuts inspection program costs by 50% for 2021
One of the ABA’s most sought-offer services is our Arizona Broadcasters Inspection Program. We’ve slashed the cost of that service by 50% for all of 2021 as another effort to support stations as we come out from under COVID-19.
The program is part of a unique partnership with the FCC that allows us to train stations on all FCC rules, have an ABA inspector audit all practices, and when passed, give stations a 3-year moratorium on most FCC inspections.
While most ABA services come with no cost, our inspection program has historically had a fee structure to offset the high cost of funding this program. For the rest of 2021, the ABA will be absorbing more of that cost — with the goal of making this program even more affordable to every member who wants to use it.
