FCC Delays Ownership and Dual-Carriage Items
The FCC pulled the media ownership item off the agenda of its public meeting at the last minute. A spokesman said the commissioners were still discussing aspects of it, such as details about how many public hearings to hold.
Depending on when the commissioners agree about the item and get the ball rolling on all aspects of media ownership -- including cross-ownership of a TV station and a newspaper in the same market -- the commissioners could either vote on the item privately or at the next public meeting, now slated for Aug. 4. A spokesman said the chairman would make that decision.
An item addressing dual carriage of analog and digital broadcast signals had circulated before the meeting and was expected to be on the agenda, but it never reached Sunshine.
