FCC’s O’Rielly: AM/FM Subcap Review On The Way


LAS VEGAS — Republican FCC Commissioner Michael O’Rielly spent Monday morning surrounded by some of the broadcast media industry’s power brokers. In attendance were Ginny Morris, CEO of Hubbard Radio, and Jeff Smulyan, CEO of Emmis Communications. Veteran media broker Glenn Serafin sat across from WBEB-FM 101.1 in Philadelphia owner Jerry Lee.

All could be deeply impacted by a proposal O’Rielly hopes to bring by the fall: Loosen the AM/FM ownership subcaps across all markets, so the radio industry can best compete against digital and social media, television, and other media and not just other radio companies.
