According to a copy of a letter from Media Bureau Video Division Chief Barbara Kreisman to Tribune attorneys, the FCC will restart the clock on Aug. 6. It was on day 74 of its informal 180-day shot clock, which it stopped on Oct. 12, 2011, retroactive to July 26, 2010.
The bankruptcy court confirmed the reorganization plan July 23.
Tribune has been in bankruptcy court since 2008 and the FCC needs to rule on the transfer of Tribune licenses and associated newspaper-broadcast cross-ownership waivers.
