Conclave Webinar Focuses on Rules of Radio


While terrestrial radio, podcasts, or internet streams are not regulated in the same manner, there are common “best practices” that can protect you from legal exposure and litigation. Gregg Skall (pictured) of the law firm of Womble Carlyle Sandridge & Rice is an expert in broadcasting rules/regulations, and is the featured presenter for the Conclave’s next webinar, “The Rules of Radio, Part 4” Thursday September 27th.

During this 90 minute webinar, that begins at 3PM Eastern, Skall will cover the concepts of sponsorship issues including sponsor ID rules, the practice of product placement, what is payola/plugola, and in this politically charged year candidate/issue advertising liability. Focusing on programming, Mr. Skall will discuss the basic and updated rules regarding obscenity and indecency, the transmission of hoaxes, usage of telephone calls in programs and shows, and will review the rules regarding endorsements and testimonials.

Conclave webinars are always free of charge, however preregistration is required via the Conclave’s website at
