FCC Rejects Alabama Combo's Late License Renewal Bid
October 9, 2012 at 10:04 AM (PT)
The FCC has dismissed as untimely DOWN HOME BROADCASTING's late-filed license renewal applications for Urban Inspirational WCOX-A and WYVC/CAMDEN, AL and has dismissed its requests for Special Temporary Authority to continue operating the stations, thus taking the stations off the air permanently.
The renewal applications were due on DECEMBER 1st, 2011, and, because the applications were not filed by that date, the licenses expired on APRIL 1st, 2012. On JULY 26th, the station filed the applications and STA requests, pointing fingers at its attorney for assuring the licensee that he would "take care of" getting the stations reinstated. The Commission rejected the licensee's STA requests and dismissed the renewal applications.
