In 2001, the FCC began rulemaking proceedings on broadcast ownership rules: the Broadcast-Newspaper Cross-Ownership Rule, the Local Radio Ownership Rule, the Television-Radio Cross-Ownership Rule, the Dual Network Rule; the Local Television Ownership Rule; and the National Television Ownership Rule.
