A2IM Media Ownership Filing with the FCC

Posted in News by A2IM

A2IM has filed with the Federal Communications Commission related to the FCC’s recent request for comments related to media ownership rules.  A2IM has previously filed when the FCC commenced their 2010 Quadrennial Media Ownership Rules review in 2010.  The FCC’s initial ruling kept the current radio ownership rules status quo.  At the same time the FCC also noted that they were still contemplating increasing allowed FM station ownership in an individual market from 5 stations to 8 stations and potentially higher station ownership caps in larger media markets.  As radio station concentration has been of concern to A2IM members, as concentration has always meant less access as local ownership shrinks, we filed our opposition to this potential ownership rule change.
