Cross Ownership Comment Deadline Extended

Cross Ownership Comment Deadline Extended

The FCC has extended the comment deadline for the cross ownership and waiver policy to Feb. 15, 2002. Several civil rights groups and church groups said they needed more time to prepare comments.
The Newspaper Association of America opposed the extension, saying the review of the rule that bans one entity from owning both a newspaper and a station in the same town is long overdue. NAA called the request requested “excessive.”
The FCC said granting the public the extra time, about one more month, was in the public interest. The decision affects MM Dockets 01-235 and 96-197.
