The FCC has proposed a $7,000 fine against VOLUNTEER BROADCASTING, LLC for a late license renewal application and unauthorized operation of Country WBRY-A/WOODBURY, TN.
The station's license was designated to expire on AUGUST 1st, 2012, and the station filed for an STA and license renewal when apprised by letter dated AUGUST 27th, 2012 that its license had been terminated and call letters deleted. The station said that it had filed its renewal application and filing fee separately, causing confusion, but the Commission rejected the argument.
