Media General to petition Supreme Court for review on FCC cross-ownership rules

The Johnson City paper, which competes against Media General outlets Channel 11 in Johnson City and the Bristol Herald-Courier newspaper, has this article which begins: "Media General is turning to the U.S. Supreme Court in hopes of continuing to operate newspapers and television stations in the same markets — including the Tri-Cities."

The article notes: "WJHL and the Herald Courier have become part of Media General’s plan to converge its media outlets in several markets. Through the convergence plan, the television station and newspaper share resources, including reporters and research capabilities."
