FCC Announces 10 Studies to Prepare for Ownership Re-Regulation
The FCC is conducting 10 economic studies of issues related to its media ownership proceeding.

The topics are: "How People Get News And Information," "Ownership Structure And Robustness Of Media," "Effect of Ownership Structure and Robustness on the Quantity and Quality of TV Programming," "News Operations," "Station Ownership and Programming in Radio," "News Coverage of Cross-Owned Newspapers and Television Stations," two studies on "Minority Ownership," "Vertical Integration" and "Radio Industry Review: Trends in Ownership, Format, and Finance."

Democrat Commissioners Copps and Adelstein questioned the timing and scope of the studies, saying they are not specific enough and that they wouldn't get much notice with a pre-Thanksgiving announcement.
