Under a new agency proposal, broadcasters awarded a station license through the FCC’s comparative hearing process would be required to hold the station for at least three years. The three-year-hold rule was reduced to only one year in 1982 amid sweeping deregulation. Relaxing the reg prompted criticism from public interest groups, who claimed the policy encouraged “quick-buck artists” to “flip” broadcast properties for hefty profits.
