The FCC has proposed fines against two licensees for public file violations.
YEARY BROADCASTING, INC. is looking at a possible $20,000 fine for problems with Country simulcast WXLZ-A/ST. PAUL, VA and WXLZ-F/LEBANON, VA's public file. The stations' file did not have any quarterly issues/programs lists for the entire license term. The stations also face a short-term renewal of 4 years.
And the UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND, EASTERN SHORE is facing a $10,000 fine and short-term 4 year renewal for deficiencies in the public file at noncommercial Jazz-Blues-News-Talk WESM/PRINCESS ANNE, MD. The station was missing 32 issues/programs lists and had not completed reconstruction of the lists by the time its license renewal was due.
