In August the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) filed a petition challenging the FCC’s incentive auction order concerning the Commission’s decision to change the methodology used to predict local television coverage areas and population served, which could result in significant loss of viewership of broadcast TV stations after the FCC “repacks” TV stations into a shrunken TV band. On Thursday, CTIA filed a motion with the District of Columbia Court of Appeals to intervene in support of the FCC. Scott Bergmann, vice president of regulatory affairs at CTIA said in a statement, ““We believe that the FCC has struck the right balance in implementing the bipartisan direction of Congress, and we will continue to work with all parties and in all venues to ensure that the Commission is ready to hold the auction on a timely basis and that consumers emerge as winners.”
