By this Public Notice, the Media Bureau (Bureau) announces that the deadline for filing Form

for October 24, 2013.
The LPFM window is currently open and completed Form 318 applications may now be

timely file applications.
Additionally, the second LPFM webinar will be held Thursday, October 24, 2013, from 1:00 p.m.
to 2:30 p.m. EDT. The session primarily will be a question and answer period where potential applicants
can ask Media Bureau staff their specific questions on areas such as the LPFM Channel Finder, creating a
CDBS account, completing Form 318, and any other issues related to the LPFM window and the filing
The webinar will be broadcast live over the Internet at and will be
archived for future reference. Participants can submit questions by email prior to or during the webinar to or by Twitter using the hashtag, #LPFMquestions. The Bureau will respond to as many
questions as possible during the session. Open captioning will be provided.
