Tell us: What will be the big media stories of 2017?
February 3, 2017
We’re only a few days into 2017, and two of the biggest media stories of the year have already been addressed.
Megyn Kelly decided to leave Fox News Channel for NBC, ending months-long speculation over where the cable news superstar would land.
And the Federal Communications Commission, in a surprising move, okayed Univision’s petition to effectively allow Televisa to take a bigger stake in the struggling Spanish-language media company.
Still, there are many issues yet to be address, including:
* What will happen with the Department of Justice probe of alleged agency price-fixing
* The future of net neutrality, and what impact a Trump presidency will have
* What will happen to debt-laden Clear Channel
* Whether Facebook can solve its burgeoning metrics issues
* If Nielsen will roll out its total content ratings on time
