Download as PDF rwilkins on PROD1PC63 with NOTICES 29758 Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 100 / Thursday, May 22, 2008 / Notices (4) In making a finding under paragraph (2), there shall be a presumption that it is inconsistent with the public interest, convenience, and necessity for an entity to own, operate or control a daily newspaper and an AM, FM or TV broadcast station whose relevant contour encompasses the entire community in which such newspaper is published as set forth in paragraph (1) in a DMA other than the top 20 Nielsen DMAs or in any circumstance not covered under paragraph (3). (5) In making a finding under paragraph (2), the Commission shall consider: (i) Whether the combined entity will significantly increase the amount of local news in the market; (ii) whether the newspaper and the broadcast outlets each will continue to employ its own staff and each will exercise its own independent news judgment; (iii) the level of concentration in the Nielsen Designated Market Area (DMA); and (iv) the financial condition of the newspaper or broadcast station, and if the newspaper or broadcast station is in financial distress, the proposed owner’s commitment to invest significantly in newsroom operations. (6) In order to overcome the negative presumption set forth in paragraph (4) with respect to the combination of a major newspaper and a television station, the applicant must show by clear and convincing evidence that the co-owned major newspaper and station will increase the diversity of independent news outlets and increase competition among independent news sources in the market, and the factors set forth above in paragraph (5) will inform this decision. (7) The negative presumption set forth in paragraph (4) shall be reversed under the following two circumstances: (i) The newspaper or broadcast station is failed or failing; or (ii) the combination is with a broadcast station that was not offering local newscasts prior to the combination, and the station will initiate at least seven hours per week of local news programming after the combination. OMB Control Number: 3060–0920. Title: Application for Construction Permit for a Low Power FM Broadcast Station. Form Number: FCC Form 318. Type of Review: Revision of a currently approved collection. Respondents: Not-for-profit institutions; State, local or tribal government. Number of Respondents and Responses: 16,659 respondents, 23,377 responses. VerDate Aug<31>2005 17:03 May 21, 2008 Jkt 214001 Frequency of Response: Recordkeeping requirement; On occasion reporting requirement; Third party disclosure requirement. Obligation to Respond: Required to obtain benefits—Statutory authority for this collection of information is contained in Sections 154(i), 303, 308 and 325(a) of the Communications Act of 1934, as amended. Estimated Time per Response: 0.0025 hours–12 hours. Total Annual Burden: 34,396 hours. Total Annual Costs: $23,850. Confidentiality: No need for confidentiality required. Privacy Impact Assessment: No impact(s). Needs and Uses: On December 11, 2007, the FCC released a Third Report and Order and Second Further Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (‘‘Third Report and Order’’) MM Docket No. 99–25, FCC 07–204. In the Third Report and Order, the FCC extended the local standards for rural markets. Under the old Rules, an LPFM applicant was deemed local if it was physically headquartered or had a campus within ten miles of the proposed LPFM transmitter site, or if 75 percent of its board members resided within ten miles of the proposed LPFM transmitter site. The Third Report and Order modified the ten-mile requirement to twenty miles for all LPFM applicants for proposed facilities in other than the top fifty urban markets, for both the distance from transmitter and residence of board member standards. We have revised the Form 318 to reflect this extension of local standards for rural markets. While the overall number of respondents increases because the Rule change expands the universe of eligible applicants, there are no new information collection requirements with respect to completion of the Form 318. In the Third Report and Order, the Commission also delegated to the Media Bureau the authority to consider Section 73.807 waiver requests from certain LPFM stations. When implementation of a full-service station community of license modification would result in an increase in interference caused to the LPFM station or its displacement, the LPFM station may seek a secondadjacent channel short spacing waiver in connection with an application proposing operations on a new channel. Such waiver requests would be filed on a Form 318. The Third Report and Order also allows LPFM stations to file waiver requests of Section 73.809 of the Rules if: (1) It is at risk of displacement by an encroaching full-service station PO 00000 Frm 00025 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 modification application and no alternative channel is available, and (2) it can demonstrate that it has regularly provided at least eight hours per day of locally originated programming. LPFM stations that wish to make a showing under this waiver standard must file an informal objection to the ‘‘encroaching’’ community of license modification application. FCC Form 318 is required: (1) To apply for a construction permit for a new Low Power FM (LPFM) station; (2) to make changes in the existing facilities of such a station; or (3) to amend a pending FCC Form 318 application.
