C-SPAN to carry ownership vote

C-SPAN said late Friday that it will carry live coverage of Monday's Federal
Communications Commission vote on changes to the broadcast-ownership rules.

The hearing is scheduled for 9:30 a.m.-11:30 a.m., followed by a press conference
until a shade past noon.

The proposed rule changes have received major news coverage over the past
week as the deadline drew near.
