FCC Halts Proceeding to Ease Media Ownership Limits

New FCC Chair Tom Wheeler apparently has a few ideas of his own on whether the Commission should ease its ownership limits on radio, tv, and newspaper outlets within local markets. Former Chair Julius Genachowski had put forward a liberalized rule for comment, but had (fortunately) slow-tracked it. Wheeler, who has said little about media ownership limits prior to becoming FCC Chair, now wants to revisit the topic and put his own stamp on the issue. Stay tuned. Details here.
