The FCC has proposed a $12,000 fine against BIRACH BROADCASTING CORPORATION for tower fencing violations at Sports WWCS-A (FOX SPORTS RADIO 540 AM)/CANONSBURG, PA.
The Commission said that its agents notified that the wooden fences around the station's two-tower array were in disrepair with large sections having fallen to the ground. A notice of violation was served on BIRACH, which responded that it had hired a tower company to fix the fences and was unaware that the work had not been completed, but the company's previous noncompliance led the Commission to revise the fine upwards.
