FCC Dismisses Challenge To Grant Of New Louisiana FM
May 6, 2014 at 3:26 PM (PT)
The FCC has dismissed a Petition for Reconsideration filed by GUARANTY BROADCASTING COMPANY OF BATON ROUGE, LLC against the grant of a new FM, now KBRS, at BELLE ROSE, LA to ALEX MEDIA INC.
GUARANTY argued that the station could be moved into the BATON ROUGE market, inconsistent with Commission policy towards rural radio, and that ALEX failed to show that BELLE ROSE is independent from the BATON ROUGE urbanized area. The Commission agreed with ALEX that GUARANTY had not raised any issues that had not been raised and decided already.
