Those are markets where at least 15% of the viewers get their TV over the air, according to FCC chairman Kevin Martin, who said Monday that at least one of the FCC commissioners would visit each of the markets -- he likened their selection of what cities each would visit to the National Football League draft -- adding that the National Association of Broadcasters agreed to help coordinate so-called analog-cutoff soft tests in those markets (note: included on the list are the Michigan markets of Detroit, Grand Rapids/Kalamazoo/Battle Creek, Lansing, and the nearby markets of Toledo and South Bend)...
