INTRODUCTION

1.

The Federal Communications Commission biennial commercial broadcast ownership

report, FCC Form 323, is designed to obtain comprehensive data on racial and ethnic minority and female

broadcast ownership – statistically valid broadcast ownership information data that can be compiled and

aggregated and used as a source for further analysis. The Commission 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

Form 323 also requires all

attributable interest holders to obtain and provide FCC registration numbers (CORES FRNs) to facilitate

the tracking and cross-referencing of reported ownership interests.2

These requirements have been in

place since 2009.

2.

This report presents the results of the third data collection using the current version of

Form 323 and reflecting attributable ownership interests as of October 1, 2013.3

The Bureau previously

released a report on November 14, 2012, based on the first and second data collections using the revised

Form 323, which reflected attributable ownership interests as of November 1, 20094 and October 1, 2011,

respectively.5 These data represent three 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 2013 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 and accompanying spreadsheets.6

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

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 Currently, filers are permitted to obtain a Special Use FRN for individuals (not entities) reported on the Form 323

in lieu of a CORES FRN.

3 The information in this report meets the Commission’s information quality guidelines. See Implementation of

Guidelines for Ensuring and Maximizing the Quality, Objectivity, Utility and Integrity of Information Pursuant to

Section 515 of Public Law No. 105-554, Information Quality Guidelines, 17 FCC Rcd 19890 (2002).

4 For a variety of reasons, the first “as of” filing date was slightly delayed – from October 1, 2009, to November 1,

2009.

5 2010 Quadrennial Regulatory Review – Review of the Commission’s Broadcast Ownership Rules and Other Rules

Adopted Pursuant to Section 202 of the Telecommunications Act of 1996, MB Docket No. 09-182, Report on

Ownership of Commercial Broadcast Stations, 27 FCC Rcd 13814 (Med. Bur. 2012) (“2012 323 Report”). Any

comments received on this report were the subject of Commission consideration in the 2014 Quadrennial FNRPM.

Adopted Pursuant to Section 202 of the Telecommunications Act of 1996, MB Docket No. 14-50, Further Notice of

Proposed Rule Making and Report and Order, FCC 14-28 at ¶¶ 259-62 (rel. Apr. 15, 2014).

6 The accompanying spreadsheets present ownership characteristics for each broadcast station, identified by its

Facility ID. In a separate spreadsheet we also provide the current call sign for each broadcast station. We note that

the data contained in each Form 323 ownership report are publicly available and may be downloaded from the

Commission’s Consolidated Database (CDBS) and then aggregated, cross-referenced, and searched electronically.

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 interest holder, 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.7

However, when

a single individual, of whatever classification, holds a majority voting interest in a licensee, this would

indicate de jure control by that individual and is considered a controlling interest. This document also

reports the attributable positional interests8 of individuals by their classifications. 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 classification of persons in this

report 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.

4.

Current Broadcast Ownership by Gender, Ethnicity, and Race.9 The following

summary uses only data from the 2013 FCC Form 323 biennial reports and thus represents information

current as of October 1, 2013 (the most current biennial information available).

5.

Broadcast ownership and gender.10

Women collectively or individually held a majority of the voting interests11 in 997

broadcast stations, comprised of 87 full power commercial television stations (6.3

percent) of 1,386 stations12; 217 low power television stations, including Class A stations

7 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.

8 Officers and directors of broadcast licensee entities, for example, are attributable based on their positions. See id.

Note 2g. The relevant question on Form 323 identifies the following additional categories of positional interests:

General Partner; Limited Partner; LC/LLC/PLLC Member/Owner/Stockholder; Attributable Creditor; and

Attributable Investor. The question also provides an “Other” option for users to specify an attribution category not

contained in our list. All stations reporting persons identified by any one of these categories are included in Tables 2

and 3.

9 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).

10 Computer analysis of the Form 323 data does not identify as majority owned combinations in those situations

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.

11 Voting interests include, for example, voting stock in a corporation, voting interests in a partnership, or voting

membership interests in a limited liability company.

12 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

(13.1 percent) of 1,651 stations; 310 commercial AM radio stations (8.3 percent) of 3,737

stations; and 383 commercial FM radio stations (6.7 percent) of 5,714 stations.

Men collectively or individually held a majority of the voting interests in 9,214

broadcast stations, comprised of 1,005 full power commercial television stations (72.5

percent) of 1,386 stations; 1,246 low power television stations, including Class A stations

(75.5 percent) of 1,651 stations; 2,737 commercial AM radio stations (73.2 percent) of

3,737 stations; and 4,226 commercial FM radio stations (74.0 percent) of 5,714 stations.

6.

Broadcast ownership and ethnicity.

Hispanic/Latino persons collectively or individually held a majority of the voting

interests in 571 broadcast stations, comprised of 42 full power commercial television

stations (3.0 percent) of 1,386 stations; 155 low power television stations, including Class

A stations (9.4 percent) of 1,651 stations; 194 commercial AM radio stations (5.2

percent) of 3,737 stations; and 180 commercial FM radio stations (3.2 percent) of 5,714

stations.

Non-Hispanic/Latino persons collectively or individually held a majority of the

voting interests in 9,879 broadcast stations, comprised of 1,052 full power commercial

television stations (75.9 percent) of 1,386 stations; 1,271 low power television stations,

including Class A stations (77.0 percent) of 1651 stations; 2,912 commercial AM radio

stations (77.9 percent) of 3,737 stations; and 4,529 FM commercial radio stations (79.3

percent) of 5,714 stations.

7.

Broadcast ownership and race.

Racial minorities collectively or individually held a majority of the voting interests in

499 broadcast stations, 41 full power commercial television stations (3.0 percent) of

1,386 stations; 64 low power television stations, including Class A stations (3.9 percent)

of 1,651 stations; 225 commercial AM radio stations (6.0 percent) of 3,737 stations; and

169 commercial FM radio stations (3.0 percent) of 5,714 stations. Ownership of majority

interests by racial group was as follows:

o

American Indian/Alaska Natives owned 49 broadcast stations.

o

Asians owned 184 broadcast stations.

o

Black/African Americans owned 199 broadcast stations.

o

Native Hawaiian/Other Pacific Islanders owned 36 broadcast stations.

o

Persons of two or more races owned 31 broadcast stations.13

Whites collectively or individually held a majority of the voting interests in 9,919

broadcast stations, comprised of 1,070 full power commercial television stations (77.2

(Continued from previous page)

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.

13 In March 2013, the Commission revised the Form 323 and its Instructions to remove the “Two or more races”

category from the Gender/Ethnicity/Race question at the request of the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) to

comply with current Federal standards for the collection of racial and ethnicity data. See Revised Supporting Statement

for Information Collection 3060-0010 (May 2013), available at

http://www.reginfo.gov/public/do/PRAViewDocument?ref_nbr=201302-3060-019. Filers are now able to select

more than one race category for an individual. For purposes of determining ownership interests by racial group and

for consistency over the three reporting periods, this report continues to identify an individual as “two or more

races” if more than one race category is selected for that individual.

SUMMARY OF RESULTS

8.

This section presents a summary of FCC Form 323 data for 2013 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.14

For purposes of comparison, we also

include in the summary information from our 2011 biennial ownership data.

9.

The information is provided in a series of tables presenting the sources of ownership

attribution. The first set of tables in Appendix C in 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 that exceeds 50 percent (i.e., a majority

ownership voting interest which includes voting stock in a corporation, voting interests in a partnership,

or voting membership interests in a limited liability company). The second set of tables in the report

identifies the number of stations that have at least one person with an attributable interest in the relevant

race, ethnicity, or gender category. All sources of attribution are included in this set of tables.15

The

third, and final, set of tables in the report identifies the number of stations with persons who are

attributable by virtue of a positional interest, meeting the five (10 or 25) percent voting interest threshold,

or that have a single majority voting interest holder. Detailed information, including market size data, is

contained in Appendix C and the accompanying Excel spreadsheets. Some of the information is

presented in the bullets below.

Full Power Commercial Television Majority Ownership Interest –Table A(1a)-A(1c)

a.

Gender

Females owned 87 (6.3 percent) of the 1,386 full power commercial television stations in

2013 and 91 stations (6.8 percent) of the 1,348 full power commercial television stations in

2011.

14 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, et al., MB Docket Nos.07-294, 06-121, 02-277 and 04-228,

and MM Docket Nos. 01-235, 01-317 and 00-244, Report and Order and Fourth Further Notice of Proposed

Rulemaking, 24 FCC Rcd 5896 (“NCE FNPRM”).

15 All sources of attributable interests are included in this second set of tables, even though the categories are not

specifically identified. As described in footnote 5 above, all Form 323 data are publicly available to researchers as

well as the general public so that any aspect of ownership by women and minorities can be examined.

Males owned 1,005 stations (72.5 percent) in 2013 and 873 (64.8 percent) of stations

reporting in 2011.

23 (1.7 percent) stations were jointly female/male owned in 2013 and 7 stations (0.5

percent) were jointly female/male owned in 2011.

Stations with no majority interest by gender accounted for 271 stations (19.6 percent) in

2013 and 377 stations (28.0 percent) in 2011.

b.

Ethnicity

Hispanic or Latino persons owned 42 full power commercial television stations (3.0

percent) in 2013 and 39 stations (2.9 percent) in 2011.

17 of the 42 Hispanic-owned stations in 2013 were in a top-50 Designated Market Area

(DMA), 2 stations were in DMA markets 51-100, and 23 stations were outside the top 100

DMAs.

Non-Hispanic/Latino persons owned 1,052 stations (75.9 percent) in 2013 and 930

stations (69.0 percent) in 2011.

Stations with no majority interest by ethnicity accounted for 292 stations (21.1 percent) in

2013 and 379 stations (28.1 percent) in 2011.

c.

Race

Racial minorities owned 41 full power television stations (3.0 percent) in 201316 and 31

stations (2.3 percent) in 2011.17

12 of the 41 minority-owned stations in 2013 were in a top-50 DMA, 16 stations were in

DMA markets 51-100, and 13 stations were outside the top 100 markets.

American Indian or Alaska Natives owned 11 stations (0.8 percent) in 2013 and 12

stations (0.9 percent) in 2011.

Asians owned 19 stations (1.4 percent)18 in 2013 and 6 stations (0.5 percent) in 2011.

Black or African Americans owned 9 stations (0.6 percent) in 201319 and 11 stations (0.8

percent) in 2011.20

16 Pursuant to a November 2012 transaction relating to the bankruptcy of Young Broadcasting, Inc., an Asian

individual indirectly held a majority of the voting interests in the licensees of Young’s 14 full power TV stations.

See, e.g., FCC File No. BTCCDT-20120809ACR (transfer of control application for Young Broadcasting of

Davenport, Inc.); FCC File Nos. BOA-20131112BDB/BGI/CFQ, BOA-20131220

GMS/GQN/GTP/GVL/FWP/GYZ/HCI/HEU (2013 biennial ownership reports filed in connection with Young

Broadcasting of Davenport, Inc.).

As a result, this report categorizes the 14 stations as minority-held. In November

2013, control of the licensees was transferred to Media General, Inc., a publicly-traded company with no majority

voting interest holder. See, e.g., FCC File No. BTCCDT-20130703AEI (transfer of control application for Young

Broadcasting of Davenport, Inc.). The Asian individual indirectly holds less than a majority voting interest in

Media General, Inc.

Accordingly, the increase in the total racial minority-owned station data from 2011 to 2013

resulted from a temporary ownership arrangement related to this series of transactions. When that arrangement was

terminated in November 2013, the temporary increase in the number of racial minority-owned stations dropped back

by 14.

17 The 2012 323 Report reported that the total number of racial minority owned stations as of October 1, 2011 was

30. Corrections for certain stations adjust the figure to 31. A modified spreadsheet including the reclassified data in

this category for 2011, identified by Facility ID, is included with this report.

18 See footnote 16 supra which explains why the number of Asian-owned stations increased in 2013.

(Continued from previous page)

19 The number of Black/African American owned full power commercial television stations changed since the

October 1, 2013 “as of” date due to ongoing transactions that closed or will close after that date. For example, some

full power television stations categorized as African American-owned on October 1, 2013, were the subject of

transactions occurring after that date or are subject to pending transactions. See, e.g., FCC File Nos. BALCDT-

20131226ACY/ADC, BTCCDT- 20131231ACA, BTCCDT-20131119BDP.

20 The 2012 323 Report reported that the total number of African American owned full power commercial television

stations as of October 1, 2011 was 10. Corrections for certain stations adjust the figure to 11. A modified

spreadsheet including the reclassified data in this category for 2011, identified by Facility ID, is included with this

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 third biennial reporting period using the revised

Form 323 and reflecting attributable ownership interests as of October 1, 2013. 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.

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.

Positional Interest:

Positional interest data reported herein include all the categories listed on Form 323.

These categories are as follows: Officer, Director, General Partner, Limited Partner, LC/LLC/PLLC

Member, Owner, Stockholder, Attributable Creditor, Attributable Investor, Other (please specify).

Stations with at least one person with a positional interest are reported in column one in Table 3 if the

person has less than a 5 percent voting interest.

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:

Explanatory Notes

Description of the Tables

Tables 1(a)(b)(c) identifies the number of stations for which an individual or a group of individuals of the

same race, ethnicity, or gender hold, either individually or collectively, a majority of the voting interests

in the licensee, that is, their voting interests exceed 50 percent. A station identified as having no majority

interest does not necessarily mean that no particular classification of persons has a majority interest in the

station, only that this cannot be determined from the reported Form 323 data as submitted. Each station is

uniquely identified in this table.

Tables 2(a)(b)(c) identifies the number of stations that have at least one person, by race, ethnicity, or

gender, with an attributable interest. Each station may appear in one or more categories in this table.

Tables 3(a)(b)(c) identifies the number of stations that have at least one person, by race, ethnicity, or

gender, with an attributable voting interest by virtue of a positional interest; or by virtue of at least a five

percent, 10 percent, or 25 percent voting interest. Each station may appear in one or more of these

categories. Table 3 also identifies the number of stations that have a single majority interest holder (one

person holds more than 50 percent of the voting interests).

Manual adjustments to the data for:

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

filings, all but two of which 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 all, 190 stations in Table 1 were reassigned to

White, non-Hispanic/Latino male; 13 stations were reassigned to White, non-Hispanic/Latino female; 5

stations were reassigned to White, Hispanic/Latino male; 1 station was reassigned to Black/African

American, non-Hispanic/Latino male; and 102 stations were reassigned to NMI. Table 1 reflects these

reassignments. Commission staff did not reassign any stations reported in Tables 2 and 3.

3.

The computer code was unable to 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 the same race together exceed 50 percent. In such

cases the stations are identified as no majority interest in Table 1. Two stations that met these criteria

were reassigned to Black/African American combination, non-Hispanic/Latino combination, joint

male/female in Table 1.

4. Commission’s staff’s additional review of the 2011 data subsequent to release of the 2012 323 Report

determined that three stations were incorrectly identified. Two additional stations should have been

identified as Black/African American owned stations (Facility IDs 2370 and 83270) and one station was

identified as Black/African American owned when it should not have been so identified (Facility ID

13792). A modified spreadsheet including the reclassified data in this category for 2011, identified by its

Facility ID, is included with this report.

Class A television tables

1. Data for 2013 based on CDBS as of March 26, 2014.

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

filings, all but one of which 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 one case, this involved moving a station that was

missing ownership reports into the proper ownership category based on staff analysis of the ownership of

commonly-owned stations. In all, 33 stations in Table 1 were reassigned to White, non-Hispanic male

and two stations were reassigned to NMI. Table 1 reflects these reassignments. Commission staff did not

reassign any stations reported in Tables 2 and 3.

Low power television tables

1. Data for 2013 based on CDBS as of March 25, 2014.

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

filings, many of which 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 some cases, this involved moving certain stations

that were missing one or more reports into the proper ownership categories based on staff analysis of the

ownership of commonly-owned stations. In all, 72 stations in Table 1 were reassigned to White, non-

Hispanic/Latino male; four stations were reassigned to White, non-Hispanic/Latino female; one station

was reassigned to White, Hispanic/Latino male; and nine stations were reassigned to NMI. Table 1

reflects these reassignments. Commission staff did not reassign any stations reported in Tables 2 and 3.

3. The computer code was unable to 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 the same race together exceed 50 percent. In such

cases the stations are identified as no majority interest in Table 1. One station that met these criteria was

reassigned to Black/African American combination, non-Hispanic/Latino combination, joint male/female

in Table 1.

4. The response rate in 2013 for LPTV stations is 66 percent, up from 60 percent for the 2011 filing

period. LPTV stations, unlike television translator stations, can originate programming if they choose to

do so. Nonetheless, many LPTV stations, like television translators, merely rebroadcast the signal of

another TV station. Television translators are exempt from the Form 323 biennial filing requirement, and

Commission’s staff’s inquiry of a random sample of LPTV stations subsequent to the 2011 filing

window, suggested that on that basis many LPTV licensees that do not originate programming fail to file

Form 323. 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.

Commercial AM radio station tables

1. Data for 2013 based on CDBS as of March 27, 2014.

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 many of the

filings for stations that 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 all, 42 stations in Table 1 were reassigned to White, non-

Hispanic/Latino male; six stations were reassigned to White, non-Hispanic/Latino female; and 32 stations

were reassigned to NMI. 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 230) 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 2013 tables.

Commercial FM radio station tables

1. Data for 2013 based on CDBS as of April 17, 2014.

2. The computer code was unable to process a number of biennial submissions due to filing errors. These

most instances, depending on the type of filing errors. Commission staff manually examined many of the

filings for stations that 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 all, 108 stations in Table 1 were reassigned to White, non-

Hispanic/Latino male; seven stations were reassigned to White, non-Hispanic/Latino female; 10 stations

were reassigned to White, Hispanic/Latino male; and three stations were reassigned to NMI. Table 1

reflects these reassignments. Commission staff did not reassign any stations reported in Tables 2 and 3.
