December 22, 2015 at 3:37 AM (PT)
The NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF BROADCASTERS has filed a legal brief with the FEDERAL COMMUNICATIONS COMMISSION to support its goal of "simplifying the broadcast foreign ownership approval process for local radio and television stations."
The 39-page document concludes:
"The NAB applauds the COMMISSION for taking this important step to modernize the broadcaster foreign ownership policies. Adoption of these proposals will allow broadcasters the opportunity to better compete in the communications marketplace, leading to increased diversity of services and ownership, while fulfilling the COMMISSION’s public interest obligations under Section 310(b). For these reasons, the NAB encourages the COMMISSION to adopt these proposals."
