The FCC today announced that it is extending, by one week, the time in which to file comments on the Petitions for Reconsideration of the FCC’s decision on media ownership rules. The challenges, about which we wrote here, deal with issues including the local television ownership limits, the newspaper-broadcast cross-ownership rules, the attribution for multiple ownership purposes of television stations subject to joint sales agreements, and the counting of radio stations in a local ownership compliance analysis when those stations are located in “embedded markets.” The new deadline for comments on the reconsideration petitions is now January 24, with reply comments now due February 3.
