WBCA Fine Cut $3,000

WBCA Fine Cut $3,000

The FCC cut an $11,000 fine down to $9,000 for Southern media Communications, licensee of WBCA(AM), Bay Minnette, Ala. During an inspection in 2002, field agents noted the EAS equipment was not working and the antenna structure was not registered. Southern Media provided documentation to show it fixed the EAS equipment soon after the inspection and that it had begun efforts to register the tower before the inspection.
The fact that the company started that process before the agents showed up is why the commission knocked off $3,000 from the fine.
