FCC Cancels Eight FM Construction Permits

These were issued after the 2013 auction

The FCC has cancelled eight FM construction permits that were issued in Auction 94:

KXOJ Inc. for 101.1 MHz in Wayne, Okla.

Family Life Broadcasting for 105.9 MHz in Plains, Ga.

Alex Media for 106.5 MHz in Leupp, Ariz.

Alma Corp. for 104.1 MHz in Eminence, Mo.

Screen Door Broadcasting for 96.3 MHz in Coalgate, Okla.

Point Five LLC for 103.3 MHz in Alturas, Calif.

Torres Media Group for 107.1 MHz in Big Lake, Texas

Jackman Holding Company for 99.5 MHz in Paragonah, Utah

All are now listed as “permit cancelled and call sign deleted.” Four of these stations had had call signs assigned, and those are now preceded by “D” for deleted. The reasons for the cancellations were not listed, but recipients of FM CPs are required to construct facilities within a specified time period, typically three years, per 47 C.F.R. § 73.3598.

Auction 94 involved 117 vacant FM non-reserved band allotments; it took place in early 2013 and, according to Radio World reporting at the time, raised $4.1 million after 47 rounds of bidding over 10 days. Fifty-five bidders won a total of 93 FM permits.
