FCC Deletes KDND Sacramento License

The FCC has denied a Petition For Reconsideration and Application For Review filed by former 106.5 KWOD owner Ed Stolz and has deleted the license for 107.9 KDND Sacramento. Stolz, who has been battling Entercom to have his 1996 sale of then KWOD (now 106.5 KUDL and home to the former KDND programming) rescinded for the past two decades sought to have his case added to the license revocation proceeding so that he could have KUDL turned back over to him and also sought to have all of Entercom’s other Sacramento station licenses revoked. The FCC ruled against his petitions seeing no merit to his arguments and is not a party of interest in the dispute between Media Action Center and Entercom that led to the license revocation hearing.
