‘If Carry’ May Get Key Endorsement

Rep. Rick Boucher (D-Va.) is close to endorsing “if carry, must pay,” the proposal that would force cable operators to pay fees to carry local broadcast signals.

Boucher’s endorsement would represent a coup for broadcasters, who have had difficulty finding support. The National Assn. of Broadcasters – at the behest of CBS – floated the idea last year, but proposal was placed on back burner during cable rereg debate.
