FCC Says Appeal Of Idaho STL Termination Filed Too Late
August 27, 2009 at 10:11 AM (PT)
GAP BROADCASTING POCATELLO LICENSE, LLC's petition for reconsideration of the FCC's placement of an STL permit into "termination pending" status has been rejected by the Commission as filed too late.
The construction of STL WQHG289 in POCATELLO, ID, originally granted to former licensee INTERMART BROADCASTING, was supposed to be completed on JANUARY 20th, 2009; the Commission says it was never notified of timely construction and placed the permit in "termination pending" status. The Commission says that GAP's petition was filed late and that GAP must file for reauthorization and Special Temporary Authority if it wishes to continue to operate the link.
