Radio Licensing

ASCAP Licensee Portal

If you already have an ASCAP radio license, log in here to access your account.

If you are licensed by the FCC to operate an AM or FM radio station, you more than likely need one of our license agreements. See below for a description of each license type we make available and then contact us to obtain the license that is right for your station.

NOTE: If you are an Internet Radio station who is not licensed by the FCC, you will need a New Media license from ASCAP, not a radio license. If you are interested in licensing the sound recordings on your digital radio station, please contact SoundExchange, as ASCAP only handles the performance rights for digital radio stations.
