Support our FCC Petition with an Informal Objection

FCC Logo

If you wish to support our petition to deny News Corp.'s broadcast license renewal, you may file an informal objection with the FCC by following the instructions below.

Procedure for Filing Informal Objections

A person or entity opposing the grant of a station's license renewal application may file an informal objection against the license renewal application at any time prior to staff action on the license renewal application.

An informal objection is less formal than a Petition to Deny, but some requirements still apply. It may take the form of a letter signed by the objector and mailed or delivered to the FCC address below. An informal objection need not contain the affidavit required for a Petition to Deny. It should, however, contain sufficient information to establish any violation alleged.  

When filing informal objections, please include an original and two copies of any filing.

Send the documents to:

FCC Headquarters
445 12th Street, SW
Washington, DC 20554.


Additional Suggestions for Filers

To help the staff expeditiously associate a Petition to Deny, informal objection, or positive comment with the proper license renewal application, the pleading should prominently identify:

  • The station's call sign
  • The station's facility ID number
  • The license renewal application file number

This information should be listed on the first page of the submission. The filing must also state that it is an Informal Objection. Failure to include this information may cause delays in associating a pleading with a license renewal application.
