Oddly enough, the line against Media-Newspaper ownership began in Milwaukee. Then mayor, Henry Maier, wanted to break up the Milwaukee Journal, Milwaukee Sentinel, WTMJ-AM, WTMJ-FM and WTMJ-TV...
all owned by the Journal Company. 1966 or 1967, I believe.
(You can get the gist from the first sentence...)
wTMJ stood for The Milwaukee Journal.
Who would think later of one place owning multiple AM FM outlets in one city? How things have changed.
