FCC Announces Localism Hearing
The Federal Communications Commission will hold a localism hearing in the afternoon and evening in Portland on Thursday, June 28. The hearing will be held at Portland High School from 4 to 11PM.

The purpose of the hearing is to gather information from consumers, industry, civic organizations, and others on broadcasters’ service to their local communities. Along with competition and diversity, promoting localism is a key goal of the Commission’s media ownership rules.

The hearing format will enable members of the public to participate via an “open microphone” session. For handicap accessible accommodations, send an e-mail to or call the Consumer & Governmental Affairs Bureau at 202-418-0530 (voice), 202-418-0432 (TTY).
For more info, call Mary Diamond at 202-418-2388.
