possible ownership cap rule changes

Post by fm-engineer » Fri Jul 13, 2018 11:09 am

What is everyone hearing on NAB's recommendation for complete radio ownership deregulation on markets 75+? Does anyone think this will pass the FCC this year or maybe next year?

I haven't seen it in a NPRM yet but then again I have only been paying attention the technical stuff, the translator interference NPRM and the C4 NOI.

Given that we are in mid July I can't imagine that it could get through Rule Making this year.

Believed this discussion scheduled for a September meeting. Whether it will go to a rule making proposal is another issue. Some of the bigger operators are opposed (I-Heart, Cumulus), while the NAB proposed essentially ending all ownership restrictions below market 75. Believe MMTC and related minority ownership groups are also opposed.
