Legal Hotline Attorney

David Oxenford


David Oxenford of Wilkinson, Barker, Knauer, LLP is SDBA's legal hotline attorney for FCC issues. Members can call or email David with general questions about FCC legal issues, and he will try to help you – at no charge to the station. Keep the questions general, as the hotline is not meant to review specific copy for ads or other broadcast material. The firm will not be acting as your attorneys so don’t give away confidential business plans as there is no attorney-client privilege that will cover any communications you have. General questions include:

  • FCC forms used to get approval for a change at your station
  • General questions about political broadcasting
  • EEO or whether certain types of advertising is permissible under FCC rules
  • Questions about what a particular FCC proceeding is all about and how it might affect stations like yours
  • Other general compliance questions

David has many years of experience representing broadcasters in Washington, and is very familiar with the issues that you face. He works with many state associations and is a regular speaker at state and national broadcast conventions. You may also have seen David Oxenford’s blog addressing broadcast legal issues that is read by many broadcasters on a regular basis, and is often quoted in the trade press – the Broadcast Law Blog.
