NAB to FCC: Don't Retreat on Ownership

WASHINGTON, DC – NAB filed these comments today with the Federal Communications Commission opposing efforts to overturn the minor reforms adopted by the FCC in its quadrennial ownership review order.

"This order very modestly reformed the complete ban on newspaper/broadcast cross-ownership and made no changes to the television duopoly and local radio ownership rules. NAB urges the Commission to deny this petition," read the 32-page filing.
