STATEMENT FROM FCC CHAIRMAN TOM WHEELER ON GRAY/MMTC SELECTION OF

BUYERS FOR FORMER STATIONS

WASHINGTON- “We applaud the commitment of MMTC and Gray Television to find buyers for each

of the six Gray stations that would increase diversity of ownership and programming in each of these

markets.

Such actions demonstrate how our rules can actively promote both competition and diversity,

keep stations on the air, and serve the public interest.”
