FCC Upholds Dismissal Of Time-Sharing Apps
September 26, 2008 at 1:31 PM (PT)
The FCC has affirmed its dismissal of 13 time-sharing applications for noncommercial FMs by R B SCHOOLS and one by HEALTH RADIO. The commission's Media Bureau had ruled in letter decisions that the applicants' non-consensual time-sharing applications should have been accompanied by proposed time-sharing arrangements after attempts to reach agreement to that end with the present licensees.
The Commission also cancelled a $6,000 fine on WEST MECKLENBURG BROADCASTING for a late license renewal and unauthorized operation of WJYK-A/CHASE CITY, VA for inability to pay; cancelled EDWARD A. SCHOBER's construction permit for an FM translator in MANAHAWKIN, NJ, upholding a GREATER MEDIA division's contention that SCHOBER never obtained agreement from it to use its tower for the new station's antenna; rejected TLP COMMUNICATIONS' challenge to the license renewals of ALASKA BROADCAST COMMUNICATIONS' KGTW and KTKN-A/KETCHIKAN, AK; and issued a $1,000 Notice of Apparent Liability for Forfeiture against MICHAEL G. LEWIS for late license renewal application for K296DW/LONE PINE, CA.
