Public File, Ownership Violations Lead To FCC Fine For KURS/San Diego
April 19, 2016 at 11:13 AM (PT)
The FCC has proposed a $12,000 fine and short-term renewal for QUETZAL BILINGUAL COMMUNICATIONS, INC. Spanish Religion KURS-A/SAN DIEGO due to public file violations and failure to file ownership reports. The station is receiving a four-year renewal term rather than the standard eight year term.
QUETZAL's license renewal application admitted that quarterly issues/programs lists were not up to date and had been recreated, but the Commission complained that requests for details of the missing issues and programs were ignored. The station also allegedly failed to file ownership reports for 2007, 2009, and 2011.
