FCC to Change How it Allocates FMs

FCC to Change How it Allocates FMs

The FCC is considering several changes to FM allocation rules in response to a petition by First Broadcasting.
Some broadcasters have characterized certain rules as cumbersome. One of the most significant changes would classify a change of community of license as a minor change in an application filing.
Susquehanna Radio Corp. supports the move; it told the FCC that such changes take an inordinate amount of time to process, up to 6 years in one case for Susquehanna.
The commission votes on these and other proposals, including streamlining the process of downgrading a Class C station to a Class C0, on Thursday.
