JULY 24, 2018
The FCC routinely, at the request of Congress, does a study of the Video Marketplace. The FCC has not previously done this sort of routine study of the audio marketplace.

Yesterday, the FCC released a Public Notice asking a number of questions about the marketplace, to which they seek information to be included in the report.
