MVPDS should check out the following list to see whether they will have an EEO reporting audit to deal with.

The FCC sends out periodic audit letters to a random selection of MVPDs, with responses due Nov. 20.

Even systems too small to be under the EEO program requirements must respond to the letter with a list of their employees (EEO programs only apply to systems with more than six full-time employees.

The FCC annually audits about 5% of all MVPDs (and broadcast stations).

On the list released Tuesday (Oct. 6), Mediacom and Comcast topped the systems getting letters.
