The article reports on the localism proposal made by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) in the U.S. This proposal will ensure that broadcasters will provide programs geared to local needs and interests. It is based on the record developed in an FCC proceeding that began in 2004. Due to the reasons that the proceeding was initiated with a notice of inquiry, the FCC is not obliged to adopt new rules to this juncture.
