The silent stations will then be spin off to minority interests pending approval from the FCC, which under this arrangement would allow the stations to continue operating on the conditions that it would continue serving the markets independently (under minority, female and/or non-profit ownership) and not make any partnerships or sharing arrangements with other broadcasters.|

|30||The U.S. Supreme Court declined on taking up a case in which Minority Television Project, the owners of San Francisco independent educational station KMTP, challenged its FCC fine that was imposed on them in 2002 for airing messages from commercial sponsors, which the FCC claimed were from for-profit advertisers. MTP had sought to overturn a lower court rulings that upheld a 1981 law that restricts public stations from airing ads for commercial products or political candidates and asked the court to reconsider a 1969 Supreme Court decision that allowed the government to place some restrictions on broadcast content, arguing that the media landscape had changed so much in the last 45 years, as well as their claim of first amendment rights. This comes after a 2013 en banc panel of the 9th Circuit ruling which agreed that the government was on solid legal ground and that it had a vested interest in ensuring that public TV retained its non-commercial nature, as stations licensed as non-commercial or public are prohibited from airing ads but can allow underwriting and spots for non-profits. The decision not to take up the case means the ban on commercials on Public television will remain in place.|

|25||News Corporation informs radio broadcasting company Entercom that it is pulling all of its advertising and promotional tie-ins involving its broadcast/cable outlets and 20th Century Fox film/TV studios from all Entercom stations nationwide.
