Reports that commercial television stations generally provided a greater percentage of public-interest programing in 1975 than in 1973, and that, while most stations meet Federal Communications Commission standards of 5 percent informational and 10 percent total nonentertainment programing, nearly 14 percent did not meet the 5 percent local programing standard in 1975.
