Today the FCC launched a new and improved LEARN website.

The LEARN (Learn Everything About Reverse-Auctions Now) website is a one-stop information resource for incentive auction stakeholders, particularly broadcasters.  Informing, educating, and reaching out to the broadcaster community is critical for both broadcasters who want to take advantage of the unique opportunities the incentive auction will provide and those who do not.  The new and improved LEARN website provides easy access to current, clear, concise, and accurate information designed to help broadcasters make informed business decisions about participating in the incentive auction.    

One of the many new features on the site is an 11-page summary of the broadcast incentive auction process, prepared by the Incentive Auction Task Force staff.  This FCC Staff Summary highlights the key issues considered in the broadcast incentive auction notice of proposed rulemaking. 

The Staff Summary and all of the other new informational tools on the new and improved LEARN site will help inform all stakeholders, and are just a few of the many ways the FCC is working towards a successful incentive auction.  We look forward to your feedback!
