The FCC has proposed a $25,000 fine against SPIRIT BROADCASTING, INC. for EAS, tower enclosure, and public file violations at Gospel WGTM-A/WILSON, NC.
Inspections in MARCH 2010 found one of the four towers at WGTM surrounded by an unlocked fence in disrepair; a studio inspection found no EAS system and no public file. The station responded that it had been in the midst of moving its studio and that EAS equipment was installed in the new location.
