FCC Advances ENMU’s Hopes for an FM Station

The local city government has withdrawn its NCE application

The government of the city of Hobbs in New Mexico has withdrawn its application for a new noncom educational FM station. Now the FCC has named Eastern New Mexico University as the new tentative winner of a construction permit in that community instead.

This is the latest update for a group of mutually exclusive applications from the 2021 NCE filing window.

In Group 158 there were seven mutually exclusive (MX) applications for service to different communities in New Mexico and Texas. The commission’s Media Bureau had run those through its comparative process and given the tentative nod to the city.

The other applicants had been New Mexico Junior College, New Hope Baptist Church Hobbs and Christian Ministries of the Valley Inc., each proposing a station in Hobbs; and then in Texas, Christian Television Radio Ministry proposing to serve Andrews; Teleamerica Communications West Palm Beach Corp. proposking to serve Kermit; and Hispanic American Christian Network Inc. proposing to serve Wink.

The announcement triggers a 30-day period for the filing of any petitions to deny.
