FCC Rejects College's Appeal Of Fine
November 2, 2011 at 10:48 AM (PT)
The FCC has denied a petition for reconsideration filed by the Board of Trustees of DAVIS & ELKINS COLLEGE, the licensee of noncommercial WCDE/ELKINS, WV.
The licensee appealed the $7000 fine for a late license renewal application and subsequent unauthorized operation of the station. The commission rejected the argument that because the failure to file the renewal application in a timely manner was not willful and that the problem was promptly rectified, the fine should be reduced or set aside.
