FCC Nixes Challenges To Two Licenses
February 24, 2009 at 11:27 AM (PT)
The FCC has dismissed challenges by the UNIVERSITY AND COMMUNITY COLLEGE SYSTEM OF NEVADA and STEPHEN KALISH to the grant of a new noncommercial FM at BIG PINE, CA to LIVING PROOF, INC. The University challenged the grant as causing interference to its FM translator K215BQ/BISHOP, CA and due to questions about site availability and public notice; after the University and LIVING PROOF agreed that the new station would move two frequencies down the dial, the University requested that the challenges be dismissed. KALISH charged LIVING PROOF with lacking "forthrightness and candor" and making a "possible material mistepresentation," plus failure to place information about the Petitions to Deny in the new station's public file, the latter of which earned LIVING PROOF an admonishment from the Commission rather than a fine.
The Commission also dismissed a challenge by STEPHEN DILIBERTO to the renewal of PITTSBURG STATE UNIVERSITY's license for noncommercial KRPS/PITTSBURG, KS due to the objection being filed two months late.
