FCC Names More Tentative License Winners
WASHINGTON (AP) _ The Federal Communications Commission announced the tentative winners of a lottery to determine which applicant should get permission to build low-power television stations across the country.
Unless challenged successfully by losing applicants, the companies announced Tuesday will be able to begin building television stations.
Low-power stations are designed to bring local television service to small towns or specific neighborhoods in large cities.
The winners were selected from among hundreds of qualified applicants. The FCC made its selection by lottery to avoid the time and labor necessary to compare the applicants to see which was most qualified.
Minority applicants and applicants with no other media properties were given extra chances in the lottery.
