The December 4, 2012 edition of Tell Somebody featured good news and bad news from the FCC.
The bad news? The FCC is apparently planning to end a rule preventing companies from owning a newspaper and radio and TV stations in the same city. This show aired part of a press conference put on by Free Press on November 28 with Wade Henderson of The Leadership Conference of Civil and Human Rights, the Rev. Jesse Jackson of the Rainbow PUSH Coalition, Bernie Lunzer of The Newspaper Guild-CWA, Mee Moua of the Asian American Justice Center, Alex Nogales of the National Hispanic Media Coalition and Rashad Robinson of ColorofChange.org speaking in opposition to the FCC's plans to gut media ownership rules.
The good news? After years of groundwork, on November 30, The FCC will held an Open Meeting in Washington, DC on "Creation of a Low Power Radio Service", aka LPFM. This show aired part of that meeting.
