The Commission has also once again denied CHRISTIAN BROADCASTING OF EAST POINT, INC. and PRAISE 95, INC.'s appeals of the expiration of CBEP's license for WTJH-A/EAST POINT, GA and denial of the attempted sale to PRAISE 95. The station went dark for over 12 months, although CBEP claimed that it had resumed broadcasting at reduced power from an alternate site, then, a week later, filed a license renewal application that said it was no longer operating. The FCC had determined that WTJH was evicted from its licensed site in 2009 or 2010, had ceased operation on NOVEMBER 29th, 2009, did not resume with authorized facilities, and that its claimed resumptions on five different occasions were not in accordance with its license. In the latest denial, the FCC said that the station's silence was within the licensee's control and that it does not believe "that the facts of this case present circumstances in which it is fair or equitable to reinstate the license and enrich a former licensee that failed to provide its community with broadcast service."
And the Commission also fined ANDREW O. TURNER $15,000 for operating a pirate station on 95.9 FM (WBIG STATION 95.9, operated by "ONE CARIBBEAN INTERNATIONAL") in MIAMI GARDENS, FL.
