FCC upholds decision to renew KTTV license

The FCC has upheld an agency review board’s decision earlier this year to renew the license of Fox-owned station KTTV-TV Los Angeles.

Despite its decision, the FCC did say the review board erred when it took Fox to task for not disclosing that former station general manager Greg Nathanson also owned stock in Falcon Cablevision, a company run by his brother, Marc Nathanson.

The review board ruled Fox was “duty bound to report” Greg Nathanson’s financial interest in Falcon because of FCC “cross-interest” rules requiring notification if a local broadcaster holds ownership in a local cable system.

Nevertheless, the FCC said the unreported interest was of “no decisional significance.”

Rainbow Broadcasting, a Los Angeles group, had challenged KTTV’s license renewal.
