FCC Extends Five Companies' Cross-Ownership Amendment Time Again
December 9, 2008 at 4:59 PM (PT)
The FCC Media Bureau has issued a 30-day extension of time for COX ENTERPRISES; CALVARY, INC.; BONNEVILLE; SCRANTON TIMES LP; and MORRIS COMMUNICATIONS to file amendments to pending waiver requests or renewal applications or to file requests for permanent waivers of the newspaper/broadcast cross-ownership rule. The Commission is extending the time periods to allow more time for consideration of the companies' request that the deadline be delayed until 90 days after the issuance of a final court order on pending judicial challenges to the cross-ownership rule.
The new deadline is JANUARY 7th. A previous extension took the period to DECEMBER 8th.
