And ED STOLZ, as executor of the estate of late wife IRENE M. STOLZ, has appealed the 2005 and 2013 license renewals of ENTERCOM News-Talk WRKO-A, Sports WEEI-A (ESPN 850), Sports WEEI-F, and Active Rock WAAF/BOSTON yet again, filing an Application for Review of the denial and dismissal of a previous Petition for Reconsideration. The new filing alleges that the dismissal of the petition on procedural grounds was arbitrary and capricious. STOLZ, who has been at odds with ENTERCOM since the latter successfully enforced its contract to buy KWOD (now KUDL)/SACRAMENTO from him after he tried to cancel the sale, has been alleging that the fatal "Hold Your Wee for a Wii" contest at ENTERCOM Top 40 KDND (107.9 THE END)/SACRAMENTO should disqualify ENTERCOM from getting license renewals until the FCC holdings a hearing on the matter.

RADIO said that its Classic Hits CJUV (SUNNY 94)/LACOMBE already serves the PONOKA community.
