The licensee has not filed for a Silent STA yet, but SOUTHEAST MISSOURI STATE UNIVERSITY is closing low-power FM KDMC-LP (RAGE 103.7)/CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO because it has eliminated radio courses and moved towards teaching multimedia journalism, according to the SOUTHEAST MISSOURIAN.

The Commission also rejected SUE WILSON's Petition to Deny the license of CLEAR CHANNEL Talk WISN-A/MILWAUKEE. WILSON, who made an anti-conservative talk radio documentary, "BROADCAST BLUES," filed against the licenses of WISN and JOURNAL Talk WTMJ-A/MILWAUKEE and CLEAR CHANNEL Talk WJNO-A/WEST PALM BEACH as "MEDIA ACTION CENTER," claiming that regular conservative talk radio constitutes donation of free advertising time to Republican candidates.
