Ownership Rules Again in Play

At its public meeting this week, the FCC plans to begin its review of its media ownership rules.
The scrutiny includes local radio ownership limits, the definition of a radio market and the ban on cross-ownership of stations and newspapers in a market.
The commission is considering a Further Notice of Proposed Rulemaking for the ownership rules it passed in 2003, most of which were stayed pending appeals. Last year a federal court sent the rules back to the FCC for better numerical justification.
