MT. RUSHMORE BROADCASTING, INC. has been slapped with four proposed fines totaling $68,000 for operating four studio-transmitter links without FCC authorization.
The company was cited with a proposed $8,000 fine for running the WLP722 STL for Oldies KMLD/CASPER, WY (subsequently silent) at a location not authorized by its license. The other three -- for Country KQLT (KOLT COUNTRY), Hot AC (now silent) KHOC and Classic Rock KASS (KICK 107)/CASPER -- drew $20,000 proposed fines because the operations were not licensed.
In another case, the Commission proposed a $7,000 fine against SIEMBRA FERTIL P.R. INC. for failing to staff the main studio at WJDZ/PASTILLO, PR during normal business hours.
