Dear Chairman Genachowski,

In the interest of ending the impasse with News Corp. and ensuring that our customers are not deprived of the World Series, I am writing to reconfirm our commitment to a mediation process and to let you know that I will be in your office tomorrow, Wednesday, October 27, to meet with News Corp.'s Chase Carey should you call a meeting.

Based on the negotiations to date, I can assure you that only with your assistance in bringing the parties together in your office will productive, good faith talks occur. And I will commit to you that I will come ready with new, constructive offers, prepared to reach agreement tomorrow.

Earlier this month, your agency offered mediation to help work through the dispute. I respectfully urge you to bring the parties together in the FCC offices tomorrow to work to resolve this matter and bring the World Series to over three million New York, New Jersey and Connecticut homes.

Thank you for your consideration.


James L. Dolan
