Rules of the Airwaves: Broadcasting your radio station phone call

By

Do you ever wonder If There’s a Law about the “Broadcast of Telephone Conversations?” There is!

Excerpt from full report, The Public and Broadcasting: How to Get the Most Service from your Local Station

Broadcast of Telephone Conversations. Before broadcasting a telephone conversation live or recording a telephone conversation for later broadcast, a station must inform any party to the call of its intention to broadcast the conversation. However, that notification is not necessary when the other party knows that the conversation will be broadcast or such knowledge can be reasonably presumed, such as when the party is associated with the station (for example, as an employee or part-time reporter) or originates the call during a program during which the station customarily broadcasts the calls. For additional information on the rule concerning the broadcast of telephone conversations, see http://www.fcc.gov/eb/broadcast/telphon.html....”
