KRCB-TV Benefits in FCC Spectrum Auction

Feb 13, 2017

KRCB-Television has come out a winner in an auction of broadcast spectrum rights conducted by the FCC. While most viewers will not notice the resulting technical changes, the station’s long-term economic health has gotten a significant boost.

At the conclusion of the FCC spectrum auction process—which took more than three years to play out, North Bay Public media CEO Nancy Dobbs says the organization was able to accomplish the goals it established at the outset.

KRCB Chief Engineer and COO Larry Stratton observes that the station was fortunate to own a slice of the broadcast spectrum that was especially desirable for the auction bidders.
