FCC, licensee settle over aging TV TBA dispute


Handshake3Beartooth Communications Company’s KTVH-TV Helena MT was operating Rocky Mountain Broadcasting Company’s KMTF-TV, also in Helena, in violation of the FCC’s TBA/LMA rules. The arrangement began back in 1999, and only now has it been resolved via a consent decree.

KTVH is the local NBC affiliate; KMTF was the local Fox affiliate at the time, and now carries CW programming.
