Nexstar, Tribune to FCC: Cap Should Be at Least 78%

Most of a dozen broadcast groups, including Nexstar and Tribune, have told the FCC, in a Hippocratic Oath approach to deregulation, to first do no harm to the current "status quo" audience reach cap of 78%.

Actually, the cap is still 39% for VHFs. But since UHF is the stronger, more valuable, signal in the digital age, and an owner can, if it had only UHF stations, reach up to 78% of the national audience given the 50% UHF discount, making it a straight 78% across the board is the least the FCC should do, they argue. The most would be to eliminate the cap, but they focus on what they say is the least it should do.
