The term "Educational Radio" includes all radio stations licensed for noncommercial operation. A history of educational radio begins with the first domestic law for control of radio in general, The Radio Act of 1912. Federal Communication Commission (FCC) regulations pertaining to educational radio or "public radio" deal with channel assignments, state-wide plans, licensing requirements and service, and operator requirements. Other general topics of discussion are auxiliary and special broadcast services, procedures for applying for an FCC license, networks and other sources of broadcast service, financing of educational radio, organizations of public or educational broadcasters, and government agencies involved with educational radio.
