Rockefeller Statement on FCC Chairman's Media Ownership Proposal

Press Release

By:
Date:
Location: Washington, DC

Chairman John D. (Jay) Rockefeller IV today released the following statement on Federal Communications Commission (FCC) Chairman Tom Wheeler's media ownership proposal. Rockefeller has called on the FCC to closely examine the use of Joint Sales Agreements (JSAs) and Shared Services Agreements (SSAs) by broadcasters and has asked the Government Accountability Office (GAO) to study how JSAs and SSAs impact competition and consumers.

"I thank FCC Chairman Wheeler for putting forth proposals that address many of the concerns I, and others, have expressed about the misuse of joint sales agreements and shared services agreements by broadcasters. I look forward to reviewing the details of his proposal, and considering other steps the FCC and Congress can take to foster a consumer-centric video marketplace."
