The Federal Communications Commission will hold an Open Meeting on Tuesday, December 18, 2007 at 10:30 a.m. in Room TW-C305, at 445 12th Street, S.W., Washington, D.C. The Commission is waiving the sunshine period prohibition until 5:30 pm on Friday, December 14, 2007. Thus, presentations with respect to agenda items will be permitted until that time. The FCC will consider: 1) the 12th Competitive Market Conditions with Respect to Commercial Mobile Services, 2) satellite digital audio radio service (SDARS), 3) new media ownership rules, 4) initiatives designed to increase participation in the broadcasting industry by new entrants and small businesses, including minority- and women-owned businesses, 5) trends in embedded advertising and the efficacy of the current sponsorship identification rules with regard to embedded advertising, 6) the Broadcasting Localism proceeding, and 7) cable ownership limits. Sounds like fun.
