Ofcom frees up the local picture

So Ofcom is set to recommending to the government that rules covering local media ownership should be relaxed, allowing one group to own newspapers and radio stations in the same area.

According to Guardian media

The recommendations will be welcomed by newspaper, TV and radio companies, which have been urging the government to liberalise local cross-media ownership rules as they struggle with plunging advertising revenues in the recession.

A solid case of commercial pressures dictating the way forwards?
