The FCC has proposed an $8,000 fine against CRS RADIO HOLDING INC. for EAS violations at Sports WFBX-A (ESPN RADIO 1450)/SPRING LAKE, NC. The station is also being ordered to submit a signed statement affirming that EAS equipment has been installed. The Commission investigated a complaint and found that WFBX's EAS equipment was not installed in the shared main studio with sister Sports WFAY-A (ESPN RADIO 1450)/FAYETTEVILLE, NC.
The Commission also fined ADRIAN COLLEGE $250 for a late license renewal application and subsequent unauthorized operation of noncommercial WVAC/ADRIAN, MI, reduced from $7,000 to conform to fines for similar violations.
