FCC OK’s Entravision’s D.C. TV Modification


On April 20, 2017, Entravision Communications exercised its right to enter into a channel-sharing agreement with a full-power TV station in Washington, D.C. that allowed a UHF facility to relocate from Hagerstown, Md., to Northwest D.C.

This “relocation” came via a Channel-Sharing Agreement forged following the FCC’s incentive auction, with the UHF signal signing off for good on Sept. 30, 2017.

With the move, Entravision asked the FCC to modify this station’s television market. Comcast objected. A ruling from the Media Bureau came on Monday (3/12).
