Reply comments to the FCC's Notice of Inquiry on Localism in Broadcasting are due to the FCC by 5pm today.
What is this all about? Well, Congress mandates that our airwaves have competition, diversity, and localism. With the sweeping media consolidation over the past few years, we've seen all three of these mandates fly out the window. This is the first small effort by the FCC to explore the impact this consolidation has had on localism, and hopefully to move in the direction of correcting the problems consolidation has created.
