NAB, TV Groups Challenge FCC Order On Political File Complaints


In a Memorandum Opinion & Order adopted by the FCC’s on Oct. 2 but withheld from release until Oct. 16, some 11 complaints against commercial TV stations owned by such companies as Nexstar Media Group, The E.W. Scripps Co., FOX, NBC, CBS, Hearst Television and Graham Media Group were resolved.

Or so we thought. Hearst, Graham Media, Nexstar, FOX and Scripps were joined by TEGNA and the NAB in submitting a petition for reconsideration of the Order.

Now, the Media Bureau is seeking public comment on this reconsideration request.
