The FCC has issued a notice of violation to SANTA MONICA COMMUNITY COLLEGE DISTRICT for alleged EAS violations at noncommercial Triple A-News-Talk KCRU/OXNARD, CA (simulcast of KCRW/SANTA MONICA-LOS ANGELES). The alleged violation, based on a JUNE 17th inspection at KCRW's studio in SANTA MONICA (from which KCRU is operated), found that KCRU was not monitoring the correct local primary stations for EAS in VENTURA COUNTY.
The Commission also issued a notice of violation to 630 RADIO, INC. for failure to notify the Commission of a tower taken down at the site of Oldies daytimer WDGY-A/HUDSON, WI-MINNEAPOLIS.
