The FCC disposes of several license renewal cases, granting the renewals of MCCLATCHEY BROADCASTING Religion KELP-A/EL PASO, BAY BROADCASTING CO. Religion KAKN/NAKNEK, AK, JEFFERY M. JENNINGS FM translator K276DA/CEDAR CITY, UT, and MICHAEL H. GLASS Southern Gospel WMER-A/MERIDIAN, MS (failed to timely pay proper filing fee, assessed 25% penalty); and CBS Rock KUFO and Talk KCMD-A (SOLID STATE RADIO)/PORTLAND (complaints by two groups that the station fell "far short of 'localism' expectations").
In addition, the Commission proposed fining DANBURY COMMUNITY RADIO $1,000 for late license renewal filings for Religion WFAR and translator W250AA/DANBURY, CT but grants both license renewals.
