Boise FM Changes Hands Again
January 6, 2015 at 7:23 PM (PT)
JLD MEDIA, LLC is selling Regional Mexican KDBI (LA GRAND)/EMMETT-BOISE, ID, recently acquired from ADELANTE MEDIA, to FM IDAHO CO., LLC (IMPACT RADIO GROUP) for $700,000 ($500,000 in a loan, $200,000 cash at closing). In DECEMBER, the parties were involved in a separate deal for FM IDAHO CO., LLC to sell KQBL (100.7 THE BULL) and its booster KQBL-FM1/MOUNTAIN HOME-BOISE, ID to JLD MEDIA, LLC for $200,000; that deal must close before the KDBI deal to conform to ownership limits.
In another filing with the FCC, IMPERIAL BROADCASTING COMPANY, LLC is transferring WVNC/LAWRENCEVILLE, VA to BRUNSWICK COUNTY BROADCASTING, INC. for forgiveness of debt of $179,100.
The FCC has rejected CAPE COD REGIONAL TECHNICAL HIGH SCHOOL's Petition for Reconsideration of the grant of a power increase to WGBH EDUCATIONAL FOUNDATION noncommercial WCAI/WOODS HOLE, MA. WGBH let one construction permit for a power increase lapse, then applied for a new, substantially identical increase, which was granted; the school complained that the two permits amounted to a six year permit and a denial of its own right to mull an "opportunity for expansion," but the Commission rejected the petition, noting that the school did not timely object or apply for a competing construction permit of its own and had no reason to be unable to do so on time.
The Commission also reduced an $8,000 fine to $6,400 against ONDA MEXICANA RADIO GROUP, INC., licensee of Regional Mexican WWFL-A/CLERMONT, FL, due to a history of compliance, while rejecting ONDA's claim that the initial fine was based on the mistaken impression that ONDA had not replied to a notice of violation. The Commission says it has no evidence of a response and in any event the response claimed by ONDA would have been untimely.
And low power construction permits were granted to the following:
- KIMBERLING CITY ADVENTIST RADIO, KIMBERLING CITY, MO
- ST. VINCENT FERRER PARISH, VALLEJO, CA
- NUESTRA GENTE COMMUNITY PROJECTS, TOLEDO, OH
- QUEEN OF PEACE, DEER PARK, WA
