FCC Publishes Studio on Hispanic TV Ownership

Posted on April 29th, 2016 by

In its latest effort to study diversity in ownership, the FCC has published an extensive study of Hispanic television stations in the United States. The study examines the relationship between Hispanic-owned television stations, the programming they offer, and the impact on Hispanic viewing.

The study, which is currently being peer-reviewed, suggests that Hispanic station ownership is associated with higher viewing by the Hispanic population, particularly of local programming.

The FCC intends to seek comment on the study when the peer-review process is complete. A copy of the FCC’s public notice announcing the posting of the report for review can be found here.
