WWGH in Ohio Has Its License Back

Says it wants to be responsive to FCC's concerns

Low-power FM station WWGH in Marion, Ohio, has its call sign back, at least for the time being.

According to the Marion Star, station manager and host Scott Spears said the Federal Communications Commission had rescinded the cancellation of the station license on which we reported earlier, putting its license renewal back in pending status.

The Audio Division had pulled the license because the FCC hadn’t heard back from WWGH to a request for additional information about the license renewal. The renewal is being challenged by a third party over allegations regarding the makeup of the station board.

Spears said the station didn’t get that request and he then filed a petition for reconsideration.

“We are a lifeline for many people in the community free of charge,” Spears told the Marion Star via email. It quoted him saying, “Whatever change the FCC would want us to make we would be happy to make.”
