MMTC finds 48 companies to do its replying for it


The Minority Media and Telecommunications Council has submitted a long laundry list of things the FCC can do now, things it can consider doing, and voluntary things the broadcasting community can do to foster increased broadcast ownership by socially disadvantaged businesses (SDBs) in general and minorities and women in particular. By way of reply comments, it submitted simply an endorsement by another laundry list, this time comprised of seconding broadcast businesses.

"We agree with the commenters that MMTC’s propsal is an important one, and we believe that the NAB’s practical questions can be readily addressed," they wrote, urging the FCC to proceed.

MMTC broke the companies down as follows: "21 radio broadcast companies, five financial institutions and capital providers, 16 media brokerages and six public interest and civil rights organizations."
