California: A Statement and Suggestions Concerning Clear Channel, Talk Radio And the Public Interest Obligation in Broadcasting to the Community of Sacramento

February 6, 2012

This testimony from various Californian groups reads, in part, 'Radio transmits over a limited number of frequencies in the air. As the airwaves are deemed public property, and as the number of available frequencies on the airwaves are physically scarce, those business persons choosing to go into broadcasting make a deal with the local community in exchange for a license from the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to be in the broadcasting business: every radio licensee is required by the FCC to serve the "public interest, convenience, and necessity."'

FCC Chairman Pai Abandoning Diversity Advisory Committee

April 24, 2017

It is unnecessary and harmful for Chairman Pai to replace the FCC's Diversity Advisory Committee, which for years drew on the expertise of diversity experts to generate valuable and vetted proposals to advance important diversity initiatives. Commission leadership from both parties too-often ignored that committee's proposals. But instead of reconstituting that committee and finally acting on its many extant recommendations, Chairman Pai has chosen to ignore it and create a new committee which will take months or longer to organize, meet, and come up with proposals. Given the Trump Administration’s track record of business friendly appointments, Pai is likely to select committee members who put corporate interests ahead of diversity. Shameful. It is decades beyond time for serious action to help minorities and women in media ownership. Pai's announcement is a serious step backwards.
