ORDER

By the Chief, Video Division, Media Bureau:

I.

INTRODUCTION:

1.
The Video Division issued a Notice of Apparent Liability for Forfeiture (“NAL”) to
Cadillac Telecasting Co. (“Licensee”) based on its apparent violations of (i) Section 73.3526(e)(11)(iii) of
the Rules for its failure to file timely with the Commission the Children’s Television Programming
Reports for Stations WFQX-TV and WFUP and (ii) Section 73.3514(a) for its failure to report those late
filings in its renewal application.1 Based upon our review of the Licensee’s response and the facts and
circumstances surrounding it, we hereby rescind the NAL and cancel the proposed forfeiture.

II.

BACKGROUND:

2.
The NAL proposed a forfeiture of $9,000 based on the Licensee’s failure to file its
Children’s Television Programming Reports for each station in a timely manner during three quarters of
the license period and its failure to report the late filings on its renewal applications.2
3.
Licensee filed a response on January 10, 2014.3 In that response, the Licensee provided
evidence in the form of submission confirmation pages to demonstrate that the reports were in fact timely
filed.

III.

DISCUSSION

4. The Licensee’s showing demonstrates that certain reports were filed timely. Based on this
showing, the forfeiture proposed for the late filings should be cancelled. Moreover, because those reports
were timely filed, the Licensee did not fail to report any violations on the renewal applications, and the
forfeiture proposed for that apparent violation should also be cancelled.

IV.

ORDERING CLAUSES

5.
Accordingly, IT IS ORDERED that the Notice of Apparent Liability for Forfeiture issued
to Price Media Corporation is hereby RESCINDED and the proposed $9,000 forfeiture is CANCELLED.
