FCC Launches Review of Media Regulations
RADIO ONLINE | Thursday, May 18, 2017 | 12:45pm CT

The Federal Communications Commission today issued a Public Notice that begins a review of its rules applicable to media entities, including broadcasters, cable operators, and satellite television providers.

The FCC's action invites public comment on which media rules should be modified or eliminated as unnecessary or burdensome. Through this review, the FCC seeks to reduce regulations that can stand in the way of competition, innovation, and investment in the media marketplace. The Commission also seeks input regarding specific rules from which small businesses should receive regulatory relief.

Today's media entities are subject to a multitude of regulations, many of which are decades old. By launching this initiative, the FCC takes another step toward modernizing its rules to the benefit of American consumers.
