The FCC also issued a short-term renewal of two years of PROCTER-WILLIAMS, INC.'s license for silent KSET-A/LUMBERTON-BEAUMONT, TX due to extended periods of silence punctuated by very brief returns to the air, the practice upon which the Commission is frowning. "Although PWI faced a number of difficulties beyond its control and sought Commission authorization for each of the Station's periods of silence, we cannot find that the Station served the public interest, convenience and necessity during the license term due to the extended periods of non-operation," the Commission wrote. The station's sale to CHRISTOPHER BOONE's SOUTHEAST TEXAS TELECOM, LLC for $100 was approved, and that sale has already closed.
