SPIRIT EDUCATION ASSOCIATION, INC. is selling W233BW/SANDWICH, IL to AMERICAN EDUCATION FOUNDATION, INC.for $30,000.
BIRACH BROADCASTING CORPORATION has requested an extension of its Silent STA for WKGE-A/JOHNSTOWN, PA due to transmitter failure.
And CONNER MEDIA CORP.has closed on the swap of W224CX/WILMINGTON, NC plus $10 to FRIENDS OF PUBLIC RADIO, INC. for W237EC (now W277DD)/MYRTLE BEACH, SC plus $25,000.
Also, the FCC has reinstated the applications by TOWNSQUARE MEDIA WATERLOO LICENSE, LLC to take three stations in the WATERLOO-CEDAR FALLS, IA market -- Top 40 KKHQ (Q92.3)/OELWEIN, IA; Classic Rock KCRR/GRUNDY CENTER, IA; and Country KOEL-F (K98.5)/CEDAR FALLS, IA -- back from the CEDAR RAPIDS DIVESTITURE TRUST. The Commission previously dismissed the applications as inadvertently accepted for filing, saying that it would not waive the two-year waiting period after a change in market definition, but TOWNSQUARE appealed, saying that the stations had been in the WATERLOO-CEDAR FALLS market for 42 years until ARBITRON dropped that market in 2012; TOWNSQUARE asserted that a waiver of the two-year rule was justified because the rule was intended to prevent manipulation of the market definitions while the present case involved a brief change by ARBITRON and that the stations were never CEDAR RAPIDS market stations except for the brief time ARBITRON dropped the WATERLOO market.
