FCC Public Information

About Public Inspection Files

For decades, the public file for each broadcast station has been kept at the station’s main studio in paper form (or more recently in electronic form at some stations) and made available during normal business hours. The public file for each cable system has been kept at an office in the community served by the system, while the DBS and SDARS files have been maintained at the entity’s headquarters office. Relying on the advantages of current technology, however, the Commission has now changed its rules to require almost all of this public file information for broadcast stations, cable systems, DBS providers, and SDARS licensees to be posted online at this site. As a result, members of the public will be able to find information regarding individual stations, cable systems, and DBS and SDARS entities more easily and at any time convenient to them.

Each entity’s public file currently includes both items that have to be filed with the Commission and items that are only available in the local public file retained at the station (or in its community of license), cable system, or DBS or SDARS headquarters office. After the online public file transition is complete, virtually all of these items will be gathered together and made available here. The items required to be in the public file, the rule section requiring each item to be placed in the file, and the retention period for each item, are listed below. A short, plain-language description of each item is also provided, but is included for convenience and should not be relied upon in place of the underlying rules’ description of the item. The text of the public file rule section requiring each item to be placed in the file can be displayed by clicking on it. Exceptions to the online filing requirement for any of the below-listed public file items, if applicable, are noted in the description of the relevant item.

Fall 2015 Radiothon Guests

October 30, 2015

Dear WOPG Listeners,

WOPG’s 3 day fall 2015 radiothon was blessed with many guests: Bishops, Priests and lay ministries.  The event’s 25 recordings can be  played at your convenience using the links at the bottom of this post.

Radiothon is on YouTube thanks to John Woods click Here

The 2 WOPG radio stations (1460 AM & 89.9 FM) serve a significant portion of the Albany Diocese bringing WORDS OF PEACE AND GOODNESS.   WOPG needs your financial support to fund its expenses; no one receives a salary, there are many loving and talented volunteers.  DONATIONS LINK


Bishops and Priests

The program discussions  center on the significance of growing into adulthood during the late teen to early 20’s. Goal is to examine how all of us respond to God’s invitations. Typically the experiences and decisions made then have a long lasting effect on each of our futures. Somewhat related to the sons response to their father’s request that they go work in the vineyard, Mathew 21:28.
Then weave into that discussion a couple statements from Jesus: “Peace be with you” and “Be not afraid”. What does Peace mean and why is there the potential for fear.
Then examine if a disciple should be comfortable in their journey on earth or should the disciple expect some tension, explain.
Wrap-up with how can these reflections be used to help each other and especially todays young adults.
