FCC to review owner limits

Public hearing slated for Dec. 11

The Federal Communications Commission has slated its next public hearing on media ownership limits for Dec. 11 in Nashville.

As part of its quadrennial review of ownership limits, the FCC has committed to holding at least six public hearings on the contentious subject in different parts of the country. The first was held last month in Los Angeles.

FCC chairman Kevin J. Martin favors loosening what he believes are outdated rules limiting media ownership, but a number of grassroots organizations as well as Hollywood unions such as the Screen Actors Guild have urged him to keep limits in place. Democratic commissioner Michael Copps opposes any loosening, arguing that increased consolidation is bad for consumers and the public interest.
