At the Nov. 30 Seattle FCC Media Ownership hearing, event co-chairs Frank Blethen (publisher, The Seattle Times) and Sharon Maeda (Spectra Communications/Reclaim the Media) opened the hearing and introduced Congressman Jay Inslee. His comments were followed by remarks from the two FCC Commissioners in attendance, Michael Copps and Jonathan Adelstein.

Public testimony began with a group of invited speakers:

Jean Godden, Seattle City Council
Mike Fancher, Seattle Times
John Carlson, KVI/KOMO
Robert Jeffrey, Colors NW
Mark Emmert, President, University of Washington
Diane Lachel, Tacoma Click!
John Sandifer, Seattle AFTRA

Testimony continued at an open microphone until the Library needed to close the building, about 45 minutes past the hearing's scheduled end. Many attendees opted to submit written comments at the hearing, including some people who had signed up to speak but were unable to get their turn at the mic.
