REPORT AND ORDER

(Proceeding Terminated)

Adopted: January 2, 2009

Released: January 2, 2009

By the Chief, Video Division, Media Bureau:
1.
The Commission has before it a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking1 issued in response to a
petition for rulemaking filed by Hill Broadcasting Company, Inc. ("Hill"), the licensee of KTVG-TV,
analog channel 17, and permittee of KTVG-DT, post-transition DTV channel 19, Grand Island, Nebraska,
requesting the substitution of DTV channel 16 for post-transition DTV channel 19 at Grand Island. Hill
filed comments. No other comments were received.
2.
We believe the public interest will be served by substituting DTV channel 16 for post-
transition DTV channel 19 at Grand Island. Substitution of DTV channel 16 for post-transition DTV
channel 19 will permit Hill to further maximize the station's service area and "to save financial resources by
using its existing analog antenna."2
3.
DTV channel 16 can be substituted for DTV channel 19 at Grand Island, Nebraska as
proposed, in compliance with the principal community coverage requirements of Section 73.625(a) of the
Commission's rules, at coordinates 40-43-44 N. and 98-34-13 W. In addition, we find that this channel
change meets the technical requirements set forth in Sections 73.616 and 73.623 of the Commission's rules
with the following specifications:
City and State
DTV Channel DTV Power
Antenna HAAT

Commission's rules, IT IS ORDERED, That effective 30 days after the date of publication of this Report
