Kennard: 'Concerned' About Radio

Former FCC Chairman Bill Kennard says it’s time to “revisit” radio group ownership limits, that he’s “quite concerned” about the consolidation of stations since the passage of the 1996 Telecommunications Act.
On LPFM, Kennard says the FCC believes it can license about 250 to 300 such stations initially. He also says recruiting engineers remains a problem for the commission and wishes new Chairman Michael Powell good luck with this and other issues.
Kennard spoke Tuesday on “Public Interest,” produced at Washington’s WAMU-FM
and syndicated nationally on NPR-member stations.
