FCC Cancels Fine Against WYJC
November 13, 2006 at 5:44 PM (PT)
CSN INTERNATIONAL's WYJC/TALLAHASSEE earlier this year had been fined $4,000 for failing to make available a complete public inspection file. However, CSN asked that the fine be cancelled or reduced because WYJC had only been on the air since AUGUST 2005 and its license was granted NOVEMBER 9, 2005. The company also noted that the station was not a renewal applicant and was not required to maintain local public notice announcements.
Based on that information, the FCC canceled the proposed fine but noted that the station was incorrect that it was not required to maintain any issues/programs lists in its public file. Therefore, rather than a fine, the commission is "admonishing" CSN for failing to maintain and make available a complete public inspection file.
