FEBRUARY 28, 2019
The Notice of Proposed Rulemaking in the next Quadrennial Review of the FCC’s ownership rules was adopted in December and was published today in the Federal Register , starting the 60 day period for public comments. On the TV side, the FCC is again looking at local TV ownership (specifically combinations of Top 4 stations in a market and shared services agreements ) and also at the dual network rule restricting common ownership of two of the Top 4 TV networks.
