KOVAS COMMUNICATIONS' WKKD-A/AURORA, IL, which has gone dark and holds a construction permit to move to SILVIS, IL in the QUAD CITIES market, has applied to the FCC for Special Temporary Authority to keep the station dark.
The application, filed JANUARY 12th, gives the reason for the request as "Financing" and informs the FCC that "The licensee cannot presently continue operation of the station due to the current economic environment. The licensee is nevertheless hopeful that it will be able to return to the air in the near future and thus is respectfully requesting that it be granted special temporary authority to remain silent pending an improvement in the economy."
