FCC Denies Challenge To 2005 WRKH/Mobile Upgrade
May 6, 2011 at 11:58 AM (PT)
The FCC has denied BLAKENEY COMMUNICATIONS, INC.'s application for review of a Media Bureau ruling denying an appeal of the grant of CLEAR CHANNEL's application for license to cover a construction permit for modified facilities at Classic Rock WRKH (96.1 THE ROCKET)/MOBILE, AL.
WRKH upgraded to a full Class C on JUNE 12th, 2005 under a CP that was to expire the next day. On JUNE 13th, BLAKENEY filed a conflicting application for an upgrade of its first adjacent channel Country WBBN (B-95)/TAYLORSVILLE, MS to Class C1. CLEAR CHANNEL then filed for a license to cover on JUNE 15th, which the Bureau ruled was late but acceptable anyway under a waiver granted based on other cases.
