Washington - Sep 26, 2006 - The FCC has released further details of its previously announced Los Angeles field hearing regarding media ownership. The hearings will be divided into two sessions held in two locations on Oct. 3, 2006.

From 1 p.m. to 4:30 p.m., the hearing will be held at the University of Southern California (USC) in the Davidson Conference Center Embassy Room. The Davidson Conference Center is located at 3415 South Figueroa St. in Los Angeles.

The second hearing will be held from 6:30 p.m. to 10 p.m. at El Segundo High School, 640 Main St. in El Segundo, CA.

The purpose of the hearing is to fully involve the public in the process of the 2006 Quadrennial Broadcast Media Ownership Review that the Commission is currently conducting. The hearing is open to the public, and seating will be available on a first-come, first-served basis. This hearing is the first in a series of media ownership hearings the Commission intends to hold across the country.

A final roster of panelists will be released prior to the hearing. The USC meeting will feature a panel discussion called Creative Community/Independent Programming. The El Segundo hearing will feature a panel discussion called Market Overview/LA Case Study. Both panels will be followed by a period for public comments.

A live audiocast of the hearing will be available at the FCC website on a first-come, first-served basis. Public comments may be filed with the Commission and should reference docket number 06-121. Filing instructions are provided at www.fcc.gov/ownership/comments.html.
