FCC reviews media ownership rules

Published on .

Two Federal Communications Commission members said they will use a review of FCC broadcast station ownership rules to look into growing ownership concentration in TV and radio. Commissioner Susan Ness, citing the growing concentration of advertising dollars in fewer stations, said she wanted to hear from advertisers and smaller station owners. The ownership rules currently limit cross-ownership of cable, TV stations and newspapers in the same market and limit the number of TV and radio stations any one company can own in a market or nationally.
