FCC Approves For the First Time 100% Foreign Ownership of US Broadcast Stations

The FCC yesterday released its first decision approving 100% foreign ownership of a group of US broadcast stations .

A new President and a new Chair of the FCC have already demonstrated that change is in the air in Washington.

Also on the table for consideration next week are orders that have already been released for public review on expanding the use of FM translators for AM stations and proposing rules for the roll-out of the new ATSC 3.0 standard for television.
