Another FCC Extension In Cross-Ownership Case
March 31, 2010 at 11:03 AM (PT)
Once again, the FCC Media Bureau has issued an 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 by 90 days to allow more time for FCC 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 JULY 6th. The deadline has been extended several times over the last few years while the cross-ownership debate continues in court.
