America First Legal Files Petition to Stop the FCC’s Unlawful Collection of Race and Sex Data of Television and Radio Broadcasters

America First Legal (AFL), with co-counsel Boyden Gray PLLC, has filed a petition for review in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit on behalf of the National Religious Broadcasters and American Family Association against the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) for its order unlawfully requiring television and radio stations in the United States to publicly report the race, ethnicity, and sex of their employees.

On February 22, 2024, the FCC announced that it would begin collecting “[d]ata concerning the gender, race, and ethnicity of a broadcast station’s workforce” and make the submissions from each television and radio station publicly available.

The FCC claims that this “data will not be used for the purpose of assessing any aspect of an individual broadcast licensee’s or permittee’s compliance with…nondiscrimination or equal employment opportunity requirements.” However, the FCC never clearly explains what this data collection is for, only making vague allusions to using it “for purposes of analyzing industry trends and making reports to Congress.”

The real purpose is obvious: to put pressure on broadcasters to institute discriminatory employment practices. ...

FCC Sets Reinstatement Date For Diversity Data Collection
By Radio Ink
May 7, 2024

Back in February, the Federal Communications Commission decided, by 3-2 party-line vote, to reinstate the annual requirement for broadcasters to submit Form 395-B, which collects employee data on race, ethnicity, and gender after being inactive for two decades.

The FCC’s Media Bureau announced that the associated Fourth Report and Order and the Order on Reconsideration were published in the Federal Register on May 3 and will officially take effect on June 3.

However, compliance with new or modified information collection requirements outlined in these documents will await the completion of a review by the Office of Management and Budget under the Paperwork Reduction Act. The Media Bureau will issue a subsequent Public Notice to inform the public of the compliance dates once they are established.

This move, led by FCC Chairwoman Jessica Rosenworcel, aims to provide insights into workforce diversity within the radio and television sectors. ...
