4. Until their screens go blank....

People don't realise this yet - there was a reverse auction that ended this past January. TV stations were asked to give up their licenses, to make way for cellular radio space. https://auctiondata.fcc.gov/public/projects/1000/reports/reverse-winning_bids

And now the FCC want to relax ownership rules, huh?

Given that there will be less licenses to go around in less frequency space for broadcast television... IMO not a bright idea.

I'm not sure where WNBC-TV is going to go yet... but since they sold their license (so that T-Mobile can have space) we'll have to hope that they end up as a .2 on another station.... or no more broadcast WNBC. Same for a lot of other stations around the country. Including local Fox affiliates.
