David Honig, executive director of the Minority Media and Telecommunications Council, called Dec. 18 one of the best days in the history of minority media ownership.

“Although the broadcasting industry is 98 years old and uses billions of dollars worth of publicly owned spectrum, minorities own only 8% of the nation’s full-power commercial radio stations and 3% of the full-power commercial television stations. All of the FCC’s remedial initiatives have been repealed or fallen into disuse,” he stated following the FCC meeting.
