FCC Nixes Challenge To KTXX Facility Changes
March 4, 2010 at 11:01 AM (PT)
The FCC has rejected the informal objection of CAMERON BROADCASTING CO. of BORDER MEDIA's application for facility changes for its Sports KTXX (104.9 THE HORN)/BEE CAVE-AUSTIN, TX.
When it filed its initial application to move KTXX from its old community of license DRIPPING SPRINGS, TX to BEE CAVE, TX, KTXX (then KXBT) was the only active station licensed to DRIPPING SPRINGS, although EDUCATIONAL MEDIA FOUNDATION held a construction permit for a new station there. EMF's CP signed on as KLLR early in 2007.
CAMERON applied to move ts KMIL/CAMERON, TX to THRALL, TX in what it said was a mutually exclusive application with KTXX's move and objected to KTXX's changes, saying that the Commission should not approve modifications while the underlying move of community of license remained under challenge. The Commission said that its rulings are not automatically stayed upon filing of an Application for Review; it noted that while the rulings are not final, the applicant may build according to those rulings at its own risk.
