NBC General Counsel Says Discussions With FCC Over Spectrum are Inevitable

Nov 6, 2009  •  Post A Comment

 NBC Executive VP and General Counsel Rick Cotton said it’s inevitable that broadcasters will have a discussion with the FCC about the government’s desire to reclaim some broadcast spectrum to use for wireless broadband, reports B&C.

The topic is "a set of discussions that are going to have to take place," Cotton said. He added that "the network local affiliate over-the-air broadcast system has served this country enormously well over a period of 60 or 70 years. I don’t think anyone wants to see, frankly, damage done to that system."
