The Federal Communications Commission will hold a field hearing next Monday (12/11) regarding media ownership. The hearing will be held at 1:00 PM at Belmont University, Massey Performing Arts Center, in the Massey Concert Hall.
The purpose of the hearing is to involve the public in the process of the 2006 Quadrennial Broadcast Media Ownership Review that the commission is currently conducting. The hearing is open to the public and seating will be available on a first-come, first-served basis. This hearing is the second in a series of media ownership hearings the FCC intends to hold across the country.
There will be two panels each followed by a period for public comment. The first panel will examine issues affecting the music recording industry. The second panel will provide an overview of the Nashville market and issues affecting broadcasters and independent programmers. The hearing format will enable members of the public to participate.
