Localism Hearing Set for Next Week in St. Paul

Localism Hearing Set for Next Week in St. Paul

Several local broadcasters are slated to appear at the FCC’s public localism hearing to be held in St. Paul, Minn. on Dec. 9.
Commissioners Michael Copps and Jonathan Adelstein, and Chairman Michael Powell support the forums – this one at Hamline University – as a way to give people outside of Washington an opportunity to voice opinions about media consolidation and how broadcasters are serving their communities. The hearing will be organized into panels on media diversity, and local news and information.
Copps and Adelstein are scheduled to appear, along with Robert Hubbard, vice president, Hubbard Broadcasting and President, Hubbard Television and Bob Bundgaard, President, KLKS(FM), Breezy Point, Minn. Also set to appear are a representative of Univ. of Minnesota station KUOM(FM), in St. Louis Park and a Twin Cities AFTRA rep.
The localism hearings began in late 2003 in Charlotte, N.C. The most recent was in July in Monterey, Calif.
