June 15, 2015 at 4:03 AM (PT)
LANCASTER BROADCASTERS, INC. has filed for a Silent STA for WKYY-A/LANCASTER, KY, the license of which has been cancelled by the FCC, as it appeals the deletion and attempts to reach 49% shareholder LEJEUNE CANTWELL, who it believes suffered a heart attack. The administrator for the late 51% owner GARY RENFRO's estate, DAVID GREENLEE, has contacted CANTWELL's attorney, who has not been able to reach CANTWELL; the filing says that GREENLEE has paid the station's property taxes and outstanding FCC fines but that GREENLEE "does not anticipate that the station will resume operation in the immediately foreseeable future."
In other filings with the FCC, CALVARY CHAPEL OF OMAHA has requested a Silent STA for KHLW/TABOR, IA due to transmitter problems.
FAMILY STATIONS, INC. has applied for an extension of its Silent STA for W208BU/BERWICK, PA because of problems with the primary station's feed to the translator.
And FIRST VENTURES CAPITAL PARTNERS, INC. has closed on the sale of K227BN/BRAWLEY, CA to ST. JPII EDUCATIONAL MEDIA, INC. for $15,000. The station will rebroadcast KCJP-LP/EL CENTRO.
