COMMUNITY WIRELESS OF PARK CITY is dropping its applications for six UTAH construction permits in the wake of the stormy departure of founder BLAIR FEULNER. The PARK RECORD reports that the company, parent of noncommercial KPCW/PARK CITY, UT, had filed for permits in RICHFIELD, PRICE, MOAB, CEDAR CITY, NEPHI, and COALVILLE, but that the applications were filed and pursued by FEULNER without the board's knowledge or approval.
Spokesman JOE WRONA told the paper, "To the current board it just seemed contradictory to be spending money and time and energy on trying to capture rights to build radio stations in places like RICHFIELD, PRICE, MOAB, CEDAR CITY and NEPHI. It's inconsistent with our decision to refocus on PARK CITY, moreover, contrary to the mission statement of COMMUNITY WIRELESS, which is to develop and operate a radio station here in PARK CITY."
The company sold noncommercial KCPW-A and KCPW-F/SALT LAKE CITY earlier this year.
