FCC wants to lower or drop ownership rules

Post by JackAttack FM » Fri Mar 15, 2019 4:13 pm

It looks like the FCC is ready to drop a lot of the ownership limits for broadcasters.

When it meets in November is going to vote to discontinue media cross-ownership with same market outlets, remove ownership caps and allow duopolies of top 4 stations in markets.

This is a major shift from ownership rules that have been around for decades and a big opening up of the 1996 act.

Does it really matter? Several already do that through a creating/using subsidiary.

Northern MI is a prime example. Sinclair essentially owns 7&4 and 29&8. Heritage owns 9&10 and 32&45
