Low-Power TV Seeks Upgrade

A group of low-power TV stations have gathered more than 150 signatures from station representatives calling on the FCC to start the process of moving them to full-power status, securing their carriage on cable, Broadcasting and Cable reports. The group says the amount of local programming they do and the fact that many will remain analog after the digital transition justify the move. The FCC is scheduled to vote on a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) on the issue at its public meeting in Nashville Oct. 15. B&C says.
