§ 73.860 Cross-ownership.
(a) Except as provided in paragraph (b) of this section, no license for
an LPFM station shall be granted to any party if the grant of such
authorization will result in the same party holding an attributable
interest in any other non-LPFM broadcast station, including any FM
translator or low power television station, or any other media subject
to our broadcast ownership restrictions.
(b) A party with an attributable interest in a broadcast radio station
must divest such interest prior to the commencement of operations of an
LPFM station in which the party also holds an interest unless such
party is a college or university that can certify that the existing
broadcast radio station is not student run. This exception applies only
to parties that;
(1) Are accredited educational institutions, and;
(2) Own attributable interest in non-student run broadcast stations;
(3) Apply for an authorization for an LPFM station that will be managed
and operated on a day-to-day basis by students of the accredited
educational institution; and
(4) Do not face competing applications for the LPFM authorization.
(c) No LPFM licensee may enter into an operating agreement of any type,
including a time brokerage or management agreement, with either a full
power broadcast station or another LPFM station.
