AM Stations Get Window From FCC

Those who would like to own an AM station - and some who already have one - take note. The FCC has opened a window to accept applications for new AM stations at auction, and major modifications to existing stations.
A filing window for certain AM construction permit applications opens Jan. 26, 2004, and closes Jan. 30. The window is for proposals for new AM stations and major mods to authorized AM facilities, such as a transmitter move.
"Due to current transmitter locations, AM station signals often reach only part of their target audiences," stated Chairman Michael Powell. "By opening this filing window, we will enable all AM radio station licensees, many of whom represent minority interests, to apply for approval to move their transmitters to locations that better serve their local communities."
