Changing the city of license of a broadcast station was made more difficult by the FCC's rural radio order. That order, about which we wrote here, imposed substantial obstacles on broadcasters attempting to move their stations from rural areas into urbanized areas - making such moves difficult if not impossible in many cases. However, in two recent cases, the FCC clarified that decision so as to permit some changes to be made without the substantial new showings. Specifically, these cases permit the move of stations from one city within a market to another in the same market, or from one urbanized area to another, without doing the complex showing that might otherwise be required.
