Joint Sales Agreement Fcc

FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler said it fills a gap that essentially allows large media companies to circumvent media ownership rules that limit control of two or more channels in the same market. Joint sales contracts are pacts between broadcasters to sell advertising together. On February 26, 2016, Media General obtained an injunction against Gray for violating the SSA and JSA, which required Gray to return control of WAGT to Media General and prohibit gray from selling WAGT at a frequency auction. The company accused Gray of using the frequency auction and the station sale to illegally leave the deals, as they were to last until 2020 and apply to any future OWNER of WAGT.
