FCC to vote on ownership rule changes today

June 2, 2003

The FCC will vote on its broadcast media ownership biennial review today. The open meeting is scheduled to begin at 9:30 a.m. in Washington, D.C.

The FCC is expected to approve a proposal that relaxes several media ownership restrictions.

Among the modifications:

  • Lifting the ban on the same company owning a newspaper and a radio or TV station in the same market

  • A change in the restriction on owning more than one TV station in a market

  • Allowing a single company to own TV stations that reach up to 45 percent of all U.S. households
