FCC Cancels Proposed Fines On Georgia Trio
August 10, 2007 at 10:52 AM (PT)
The FCC has cancelled three proposed $4,000 fines issued to GEORGIA EAGLE BROADCASTING for public file violations at WCEH-A and WRPG/HAWKINSVILLE, GA and WQXZ/PINEHURST, GA. GEORGIA EAGLE noted that it had only acquired the licenses in early first quarter 2007 and therefore, upon the MAY 9 inspection, only one issues/programs list for part of one quarter was missing. The Commission agreed, although it has admonished the licensee for the missing lists.
The Commission is also asking for public comment on a proposed 10-application limit for the noncommercial educational FM filing window OCTOBER 12-19, with comments due 15 days after the request is published in the FEDERAL REGISTER and replies due 25 days after publication. In addition, the Commission has instituted a limited application filing freeze starting SEPTEMBER 8 through the close of the window, freezing all applications for reserved band minor changes and amendments, and also freezing minor changes and amendments for channels 221, 222, and 223 in the commercial band.
