WASHINGTON, DC – NAB filed these comments today with the Federal Communications Commission opposing efforts to overturn the minor reforms adopted by the FCC in its quadrennial ownership review order.
"This order very modestly reformed the complete ban on newspaper/broadcast cross-ownership and made no changes to the television duopoly and local radio ownership rules. NAB urges the Commission to deny this petition," read the 32-page filing.
The National Association of Broadcasters is a trade association that advocates on behalf of more than 8,300 free, local radio and television stations and also broadcast networks before Congress, the Federal Communications Commission and the Courts. Information about NAB can be found at www.nab.org.
