FCC Decision Riles Low-Power Station Owners

Oct 15, 2008  •  Post A Comment

When FCC Chairman Kevin Martin shelved plans to grant Class A low-power TV stations must-carry rights due to a lack of political support, owners of the low-power stations were none too pleased and were left worried about their own survival, TVNewsday reports. “We don’t know exactly what’s going on at the Commission,” said Peter Tannenwald, counsel to the Community Broadcasters Association, a trade group representing low-power stations. “Four commissioners said they’re not going to vote for the notice of proposed rulemaking. We don’t know why.”
