The FCC cancelled a $22,000 fine for MRJ, Inc., licensee of WWYO(AM), Pineville, W. Va. The agency admonished MRJ, Inc. for not conducting weekly EAS tests, registering its tower, and not having a working fence around its antenna. MRJ did not dispute the FCC's findings and said it continues to try and correct the problems and has asked for the fine to be either cancelled or reduced due to financial hardship. MRJ backed up its claim with documentation, which the agency reviewed, and agreed with. It cancelled the fine and admonished the station instead.
