FCC Report 2/18: Four AM Translators Reinstated
Four previously dismissed translator applications from the July 2017 filing window have been reinstated. Township Media’s AAA “Sun Radio” 1490 KTSN Austin TX (96.1), Southern Broadcast Media’s Oldies 980 WTOB Winston-Salem NC (100.7), WJBW LLC’s Haitian “Radio Azure” 1000 WJBW Jupiter FL (93.7 West Palm Beach), and American Media Investment’s Gospel “1450 The Dove” KQYX Galena KS (92.9 Joplin MO) all had their applications dismissed last September because those licenses were associated with applications done during the 2016 250 mile waiver period. But those applications were all dismissed. As the AM Revitalization rules specify one new translator per AM license and not one application per license, all have been reinstated.
The FCC has opened a Proposed Rule Making for amending the Table of Allotments to add a new Class A on 97.3 in Connerville OK. The Chickasaw Nation made the proposal to add the allotment and seeks to gain Tribal Priority for the allocation.
