Cloud Clears for Tribune

The FCC is expected to remove a regulatory cloud over Tribune Co. in three markets by relaxing the newspaper-broadcast cross-ownership ban.

Following are the Tribune properties that would be immediately affected by the rule change.

Los Angeles:Los Angeles Times and KTLA-TV

New York:Newsday and WPIX-TV

Hartford:The Hartford Courant and WTIC-TV

Tribune also owns The Sun-Sentinel
and WJHL-TV in South Florida under an FCC waiver pending the outcome of the June 2 vote. Since the vote is expected to be favorable, Tribune will no longer need a waiver in the market.
