Abstract: The purposes of this study were: (1) to determine who may have access to air time on television stations in North Carolina, (2) to discover the attitudes of station managers with regard to the governmental regulation of the granting of air time, and (3) to determine the current policies of television stations regarding the granting of air time. A questionnaire containing three parts was sent to every manager of a commercial television station in North Carolina. Section I of the questionnaire asked questions concerning the granting of free time. Section II asked questions about paid access. Section III dealt with management attitude. Of the seventeen managers, five fully completed their questionnaires (29.4%); four more answered only Section III, for a total of nine responses to that section (52.9%).
