TWiRT 160 - John Garziglia

Legal matters in broadcasting both frame and dictate the way we work. On this episode of TWiRT, John Garziglia joins us to talk about the legal, process, and practical sides of FM translators and more.

John is a Partner in the Washington, DC, office of Womble Carlyle Sandridge & Rice, representing radio and television broadcasters with Federal Communications Commission and communications law matters. John was formerly a broadcaster, working in the industry in St. Louis, Washington, D.C., and several smaller markets. John represents many broadcasters large and small with regard to questions that arise in the day-to-day operations of stations. He is a frequent speaker at both national and state broadcaster conventions.

He was instrumental in the creation of the Class C0 FM class.

He’s also a big proponent of translators for AMs and recently caused a bit of controversy by saying many LPFM people were “hobby broadcasters who would like to play radio.”

John fills us in on recent FCC translator matters, including the so-called “Tell City Waiver” and the “Mattoon Waiver.”

We also get to talk about John’s favorite ride – a Tesla Roadster.


Telos Systems and Axia Audio and the easy-to-use Livewire IP-Audio network.
