I always get a headache listening to Bob Lonsberry and turn him off within a half hour.

Do the loud commercials, blaring music and Bobs constant shouting bother others?


How to Report a CALM Act Violation

The easiest way to file a loud commercial complaint is by using the FCC’s online complaint form at www.fcc.gov/complaints .

To use the form, click on the Complaint Type button “Broadcast (TV and Radio), Cable, and Satellite Issues,” and then click on the Category button “Loud Commercials.” This will take you to the “Form 2000G - Loud Commercial Complaint” form. Fill out the form and click on “Complete the form” to submit your complaint to the FCC.

The “Loud Commercial Complaint” form asks for information, including the date and time you saw the commercial, the name of the program you were watching and which TV station or pay TV provider transmitted the commercial. It’s a lot of information, but it is necessary to help the FCC correctly identify the offending commercial from among the tens of thousands of commercials aired every day.

You can also call the FCC’s Consumer Call Center at 1-888-CALL-FCC (1-888-225-5322)(voice) or 1-888-TELL-FCC (1-888-835-5322) for TTY.

You can fax a complaint to 1-866-418-0232, or mail a letter (how quaint) to:

Federal Communications Commission
Consumer and Governmental Affairs Bureau
Consumer Inquiries and Complaints Division
445 12th Street, SW, Washington, DC 20554.

That sounds like a hell of a lot of work to report a loud commercial. Yikes.

TV commercials get louder and softer. Especially the car and fast food ads. pretzel BUN:::::.
