NHMC Challenges Tribune Media Conglomerate

All broadcast stations are licensed through the FCC to serve the public. NHMC has a history of challenging the licenses of stations that are not in compliance with the FCC's ownership regulations or that fail to fulfill their public service obligations. For example, on June 14th represented by counsel from Georgetown Law's Institute for Public Representation, NHMC filed a joint petition to deny the transfer of Tribune broadcast stations. If our petition to deny is granted, it will result in more media diversity and stymie further consolidation. The petition to deny is also significant because it will lead to the FCC's first examination of broadcast conglomerates under the deregulatory version of the newspaper-broadcast cross-ownership rule and will set precedent for how this new version of the rule is enforced. That petition to deny can be read here and a reply in support of the petition, here.  ]]>
