FCC extends deadline for comments on media ownership studies
The Media Bureau Sept. 28 extended the filing deadline for comments and reply comments on the commission's Media Ownership Studies. The new comment deadline is Oct. 22, and reply comments are now due Nov. 1.
As part of its quadrennial review of media ownership rules, the commission released 10 research studies done to inform decisions in the review. With their release July 31, the commission sought comments on each from interested parties. Before granting the extension, the deadlines for comments and reply comments were Oct. 1 and Oct. 16, respectively.
On Sept. 11, 2007, Free Press, Consumer Federation of America and Consumer Union filed a joint request for an extension of time to file comments on the studies.
