    I was just wondering. If Robin falls ill again and/or Howard broadcasts from Chimneyville South over the winter, and Beffie wants to get in on the show as a co-host, would she need a broadcasting license to do so? I understand that guests on radio shows don't need licenses but what about co-hosts? Does the fact that the show is on satellite and not subject to FCC regulation make a difference?

    The answer to all of your questions is: "No."

    An FCC license is no longer required.

    I predicted that Beffy would one day be brought in as part of the show.

    The day it actually happens won't surprise me in the least.

    According to section 72 subsection 8 she would not need a license. All animals fall under the same exemption.
