INTRODUCTION

1.
In 2009, the Federal Communications Commission revised its biennial commercial
broadcast ownership report, FCC Form 323, to obtain more complete, reliable, and accurate data on racial
and ethnic minority and female broadcast ownership – data that would provide a statistically valid and
ultimately searchable and aggregable compilation of broadcast ownership information. As a result of
these changes, the Commission now requires full power commercial television and radio broadcast
stations and low power and Class A television stations, including any of these stations owned by sole
proprietorships and partnerships of natural persons, to file a biennial ownership report using the same “as
of” date (October 1) for reported data during each filing cycle. A station’s report must identify all of its
attributable interest holders.1 The revised Form 323 also requires all attributable interest holders to obtain
and provide FCC registration numbers (FRNs) to facilitate the tracking and cross-referencing of reported
ownership interests. Under prior biennial filing requirements, low power and Class A stations were
exempt, as were sole proprietorships and partnerships comprised solely of natural persons. Moreover,
under the Commission’s prior ownership reporting requirements, the “as of” filing date for the reports
was keyed to the renewal anniversary date of the filing station, which varies from station to station
depending upon each facility’s location. And only licensees were required to obtain and provide FRNs.
These factors made valid trend analysis of ownership patterns based on gender, ethnicity, and race
virtually impossible.
2.
The Commission’s first data collection using the revised Form 323 reflects attributable
ownership interests as of November 1, 2009.2 The second data collection reflects attributable ownership
interests as of October 1, 2011. These data represent the first two snapshots of broadcast ownership in a
series of planned biennial data collections that, taken together, should provide a reliable basis for
analyzing ownership trends in the industry, including ownership by racial and ethnic minorities and
women. The Media Bureau compiled the 2009 and 2011 biennial ownership filings using both
algorithmic analysis and manual adjustments to obtain the best picture of ownership status and trends that
the data would permit. The Bureau presents its findings in the narrative text below and in greater detail in
the attached tables.
3.
Users of these data should bear in mind that control of a licensee in the usual parlance of
our cases and procedures indicates either de jure or de facto control by identifiable individuals or groups.
Because the Bureau reports interests here that are held collectively by certain classes of individuals who
may have no connection with one another beyond their shared classification by gender, ethnicity, or race,
the fact that a particular class of individuals may have a majority of the voting stock or partnership
interests in a licensee does not necessarily indicate control by that class of individuals. Rather, absent a
single majority stockholder, control of these stations would be determined on a de facto basis, which
requires access to facts not reported on Form 323. Accordingly, this report refers to these collective
interests as “majority” interests, rather than “controlling” interests. Similarly, of course, where no
majority interest is reported, a de facto analysis would be required to determine control.3 However, when
a single individual, of whatever classification, holds a majority voting interest in a licensee, this would


1 Attribution of an ownership interest to an individual or entity is governed by the Commission’s rules and can be a
complex determination. It represents the Commission’s best judgment concerning when an interest is sufficient to
confer on the owner a potential degree of influence over a licensee that should be cognizable for purposes of
applying the Commission’s broadcast ownership rules. See the notes to 47 C.F.R. § 73.3555.
2 For a variety of reasons, the first “as of” filing date was slightly delayed – from October 1, 2009, to November 1,
2009. Other factors also affect the 2009 data somewhat. See n. 7, below.
3 Because ownership of less than 5 percent of the outstanding voting stock of a corporation is not attributable, it is
common for portions of a licensee’s voting stock not to be reported on Form 323, particularly where the licensee is a
public, widely held entity. In some cases, no attributable voting stock may be reported. See 47 C.F.R. § 73.3555,
note 2a.

indicate de jure control by that individual and are considered controlling interests. This document also
reports the attributable positional interests4 of individuals by their classification. These individuals may
exercise control of a licensee where no single individual holds a majority of the voting interests in that
licensee, and are more likely to do so where no attributable voting interests are identified, but this cannot
be inferred from the Form 323 data alone. As with all de facto control determinations, the specific facts
of each case would be required to determine actual control. Finally, our classification of a licensee in this
report as having “No Majority Interest” does not necessarily mean that no particular classification of
persons has a majority interest in the station, only that these facts cannot be determined from the reported
Form 323 data in the absence of additional information.

summary uses only data from the 2011 FCC Form 323 biennial reports and thus represents information
current as of October 1, 2011 (the most current biennial information available).6
5.
Broadcast ownership and gender.
·
Women collectively or individually held a majority of the voting interests7 in 934
broadcast stations, comprised of 91 full power commercial television stations (6.8
percent) of 1,348 stations8; 220 low power television stations, including Class A stations
(13.2 percent) of 1,662 stations; 300 commercial AM radio stations (7.8 percent) of 3,830
stations; and 323 commercial FM radio stations (5.8 percent) of 5,611 stations.
·
Men collectively or individually held a majority of the voting interests in 9,136
broadcast stations, comprised of 873 full power commercial television stations (64.8
percent) of 1,348 stations; 1,132 low power television stations, including Class A stations
(68.1 percent) of 1,662 stations; 2,841 commercial AM radio stations (74.2 percent) of
3,830 stations; and 4,290 commercial FM radio stations (76.5 percent) of 5,611 stations.

Hispanic/Latino persons collectively or individually held a majority of the voting
interests in 513 broadcast stations, comprised of 39 full power commercial television
stations (2.9 percent) of 1,348 stations; 151 low power television stations, including Class
A stations (9.1 percent) of 1,662 stations; 172 commercial AM radio stations (4.5

5 The gender, ethnicity and race categories identified in Form 323 follow the guidance provided by the Office of
Management and Budget. See Revisions to the Standards for the Classification of Federal Data on Race and
Ethnicity, 62 Fed. Reg. 58, 782 (Oct. 30, 1997).
6 Computer analysis of the Form 323 data does not currently account for ownership combinations where the
aggregate votes of neither gender exceed 50 percent, but the aggregate votes of the female attributable owner(s) and
the aggregate votes of the male attributable owner(s) of either the same ethnicity or race together exceed 50 percent
(e.g., a station where Hispanic/Latino females hold 40 percent of the vote and Hispanic/Latino males hold 40
percent of the vote). In such cases the stations are identified as no majority interest in Table 1.
7 Voting interests include, for example, voting stock in a corporation, voting interests in a partnership, or voting
membership interests in a limited liability company.
8 Percentages of stations held are calculated on the basis of the number of stations filing usable data relevant for
each category of ownership, not on the basis of the total number of licensed stations. Stations that did not file
ownership reports, stations that filed insufficient data, as well as stations that are not included in the specific
ownership category are not included in these calculations.

SUMMARY OF RESULTS

8.
This section presents a summary of FCC Form 323 data for 2011 and 2009 by category of
ownership (majority voting ownership interest, attributable (ownership) interest and type of attributable
interest) and gender, ethnicity, and race. Results are reported by service, broken down into full power
commercial broadcast television stations, Class A television stations, low power television stations,
commercial AM radio stations, and commercial FM radio stations.9
9.
The information provided is based on several different measures of ownership. First, the
report identifies the number of stations for which an individual or a group of individuals of the same race,
ethnicity, or gender holds, either individually or collectively, an attributable voting interest in the licensee


9 Noncommercial broadcast stations are not included in this report, because they are not required to file the same
Form 323 biennial ownership report as commercial stations. Noncommercial broadcast stations are required to file
Form 323-E biennially, and the current form does not collect information on gender, ethnicity, or race. The
Commission has sought comment on whether to modify Form 323-E in order to collect gender and ethnic and racial
minority information for noncommercial broadcast stations and Low Power FM radio stations. See Promoting
Diversification of Ownership in the Broadcast Services

that exceeds 50 percent (i.e., a majority ownership interest). The report then identifies the number of
stations that have parties that are attributable by virtue of meeting the five percent voting interest
threshold and/or by virtue of a positional interest. The report also identifies stations that have a single
majority voting interest holder. Detailed information, including market size data, is contained in the
tables in Appendix C and the accompanying Excel spreadsheets.10

Gender


·
Females owned 91 (6.8 percent) of the 1,348 full power commercial television stations in
2011 and 66 stations (5.6 percent) of the 1,187 full power commercial television stations in
2009.
·
Males owned 873 stations (64.8 percent) in 2011 and 719 (60.4 percent) of stations
reporting in 2009.
·
7 stations (0.5 percent) were jointly female/male owned in both years.
·
Stations with no majority interest by gender accounted for 377 stations (28.0 percent) in
2011 and 398 stations (33.5 percent) in 2009.
b. Ethnicity
·
Hispanic or Latino persons owned 39 full power commercial television stations (2.9
percent) in 2011 and 30 stations (2.5 percent) in 2009.
·
14 of the 39 Hispanic-owned stations in 2011 were in a top-50 Designated Market Area
(DMA), 3 stations were in DMA markets 51-100, and 22 stations were outside the top 100
DMAs.
·
Non-Hispanic/Latino persons owned 930 stations (69.0 percent) in 2011 and 760 stations
(63.9 percent) in 2009.
·
Stations with no majority interest by ethnicity accounted for 379 stations (28.1 percent) in
2011 and 400 stations (33.6 percent) in 2009.
c. Race
·
Racial minorities owned 30 full power television stations (2.2 percent) in both years.


10 While this section and the tables provide a basis for trend analysis over the biennial reporting periods from 2009
to 2011, several factors counsel caution in such analysis. First, while 85 percent of all full power commercial
television stations filed biennial ownership reports as required in 2009, fifteen percent of stations either submitted
insufficient data to identify ownership or failed to file. This was due in part to the fact that 2009 was the first filing
date for the new, extensively revised form and to the complexity of the information required to accurately file. By
the 2011 biennial filing period, only three percent of full power commercial television stations submitted insufficient
data to identify ownership or failed to file. Most of the 204 stations for which the Commission lacked usable
ownership data in 2009 (identified as either “insufficient data” or “not filed” in the 2009 tables) were identified as
either female or male majority owned stations in 2011. On that basis, the 2011 data represent a more complete
picture of ownership of these stations. Second, the 2009 biennial filing requirement included many licensees that
previously had not been required to file biennial ownership reports (e.g., low power television stations) and filing
rates for these licensees were considerably lower in 2009 than in 2011 and still lag those for other filers. Changes in
gender, ethnicity, and race of the owners of stations between 2009 and 2011 listed in subsection A(1) could
therefore be somewhat misleading because of the missing 2009 data. Additional data points will be provided by
future biennial filings, and trend analysis should become increasingly reliable.

CONCLUSION

10.
With this report the Media Bureau provides an analysis of broadcast ownership data,
including data related to ownership by racial and ethnic minorities and women, based on the
Commission’s collection of such information during the first two biennial reporting periods using the
revised Form 323 and reflecting attributable ownership interests as of November 1, 2009 and October 1,
2011. The Bureau expects that information from subsequent biennial ownership filings will allow for
additional analysis of broadcast ownership, including trends related to gender, ethnicity, and race.

APPENDIX A

Glossary of Terms

Attributable ownership interest: An interest that is attributable pursuant to Note 2 of Section 73.3555 of
the Commission’s rules (47 C.F.R. § 73.3555 Note 2).
Combination: This category covers situations in which there is at least one female and one male
attributable station owner and the aggregate votes of the female attributable owner(s) and the aggregate
votes of the male attributable owner(s) of either the same ethnicity (or race) both separately exceed 50
percent (e.g., a station where a wife and husband, both Hispanic/Latino, each hold 100% as joint
tenants(s).
Controlling interest: A single individual holds a majority voting interest (i.e., more than 50 percent) in
the licensee or its controlling parent or parents.
Insufficient data to identify: The computer code was unable to process the data submitted to the
Commission in these stations’ biennial filings.
Joint Female/Male: A situation in which there is at least one female and one male attributable station
owner and the aggregate votes of the female attributable owner (s) and the aggregate votes of the male
attributable owner(s) both separately exceed 50 percent (e.g., a station where a wife and husband each
own 100 percent of the station as joint tenants).
Majority interest: A group of individuals of the same gender, ethnicity, or race, collectively hold an
attributable voting interest in the licensee that exceeds 50 percent.
No majority interest: No individual or group of individuals of the same race, ethnicity, or gender holds,
either individually or collectively, an attributable voting interest in the licensee that exceeds 50 percent.
The computer code may have included some stations in this category if the stations’ biennial filings
contained data errors or inaccuracies that caused the computer code to be unable to properly process the
data submitted to the Commission.
Not filed: This category includes situations where (a) the station’s licensee did not file a biennial 323
form (some of these licensees filed a 323-E form instead), or (b) the Commission’s database (CDBS) was
unable to accept the licensee’s filing as a result of a fee issue, or (c) the licensee’s filing could not be
processed by the computer code.
Ethnicity Definition (Hispanic or Latino): A person of Cuban, Mexican, Puerto Rican, South or Central
American, or other Spanish Culture or origin, regardless of race.
Race Definitions:
·
American Indian or Alaska Native: A person having origins in any of the original peoples of North
America and South America including Central America, and who maintains tribal affiliation or
community attachment.
·
Asian: A person having origins in any of the original peoples of the Far East, Southeast Asia, or
Indian Subcontinent including Cambodia, China, India, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, Pakistan, the
Philippine Island, Thailand, and Vietnam.
·
Black or African American: A person having origins in any of the black racial groups of Africa.
·
Native Hawaiian or Other Pacific Islander: A person having origins in any of the original peoples of
Hawaii, Guam, Samoa, or other Pacific Islands.

Explanatory Notes

Full power commercial television tables

1. Data for 2011 and 2009 based on CDBS as of July 2, 2012.
2. The computer code was unable to process a number of biennial submissions due to filing errors. These
stations’ filings defaulted to “Insufficient data to identify” or “No majority interest” (NMI) categories in
most instances, depending on the type of filing errors. Commission staff manually examined a number of
the stations that erroneously fell into these categories based on the data contained in the Form 323
submissions, together with other available information, and reassigned the stations to the appropriate
category in Table 1 for the purposes of this report. In 2011, 75 stations in Table 1 were reassigned from
the default categories to White, non-Hispanic male, 42 stations were reassigned to NMI, one station was
reassigned to White, non-Hispanic female, and two stations were reassigned to Black/African male. In
2009, 41 stations in Table 1 were reassigned to White-non-Hispanic male and 40 stations were reassigned
to NMI. Table 1 reflects these reassignments. Commission staff did not reassign any stations reported in
Tables 2 and 3.
3. 16 stations received waivers of the 2009 biennial filing requirement because the stations were
transferred or assigned between Nov. 1, 2009 and June 23, 2010. These stations are listed as “not filed”
in the 2009 tables.

submissions, together with other available information, and reassigned the stations to the appropriate
category for the purposes of this report. In 2011, 13 stations in Table 1 were reassigned to White, non-
Hispanic male. In 2009, 14 stations in Table 1 were reassigned to White, non-Hispanic male. Table 1
reflects these reassignments. Commission staff did not reassign any stations reported in Tables 2 and 3.

the stations that erroneously fell into these categories based on the data contained in the Form 323
submissions, together with other available information, and reassigned the stations to the appropriate
category for the purposes of this report. In 2011, 8 stations in Table 1 were reassigned to White, non-
Hispanic male. In 2009, 8 stations in Table 1 were reassigned to White, non-Hispanic male. Table 1
reflects these reassignments. Commission staff did not reassign any stations reported in Tables 2 and 3.
3. The response rate in 2011 for LPTV stations is 60 percent. LPTV stations, unlike television translator
stations, can originate programming if they choose to do so. Nonetheless, many LPTV stations merely

DA 12-1667

rebroadcast the signal of another TV station. Commission staff conducted an inquiry of a random sample
of stations in the LPTV category for which owners did not make a 2011 biennial filing. The responses
received suggest that a minimum of 83 percent of the stations we contacted are not originating
programming and appear to be operating as if they were television translators, which are not required to
file biennial ownership reports. Based on the foregoing, the LPTV response rate for stations that originate
programming is likely significantly higher than it appears from the data contained in the Form 323 filings
and the attached tables. Parties are reminded, however, that the Form 323 filing requirement applies to
stations based on regulatory classification. Accordingly, stations classified as LPTV stations must submit
biennial ownership reports regardless of whether or not they originate programming.
4. 5 stations received waivers of the 2009 biennial filing requirement because the stations were
transferred or assigned between Nov. 1, 2009 and June 23, 2010. These stations are listed as “not filed”
in the 2009 tables. 3 stations received indefinite time extensions to file the 2011 323 form until the
Commission resolves the relevant outstanding rulemakings. See, for example, the NCE FNPRM.

Hispanic male. In 2009, 16 stations in Table 1 were reassigned to White, non-Hispanic male. Table 1
reflects these reassignments. Commission staff did not reassign any stations reported in Tables 2 and 3.
3. A number of AM radio stations (approximately 130) operate as noncommercial, educational stations.
These stations are required to file a Form 323-E ownership report rather than a Form 323. On this basis,
these stations are identified as “not filed” in the 2011 and 2009 tables.
4. 155 stations received waivers of the 2009 biennial filing requirement because the stations were
