Formal Petition Against WTVJ Sale Filed

4

This from the Save WTVJ Blog

Miami attorney JB Harris announced today that he would file a formal petition with the FCC to stop the proposed sale of Miami television station WTVJ (NBC6) by owner NBC Universal to rival Post-Newsweek Stations, which owns and operates Miami’s WPLG (Channel 10).

The petition is being filed on behalf of a Coalition of Concerned Citizens for Competition and Fairness in Broadcast Journalism, headed by William McCormick, former President of the Fort Lauderdale NAACP.

The petition is 14 pages long!

I guess when someone said there was a grassroots effort to stop the merger they were not kidding.

We wish them success.

  1. I don’t wish to see another WTLV-WJXX style duopoly in South Florida. I would like to see this deal between NBC and Post-Newsweek fall apart. Post-Newsweek being denied ownership of WTVJ… NBC selling WTVJ to a different company.
