INTRODUCTION

1.
We impose a penalty of $1,500 against Gerald Parks, licensee of AM Station WEKC in
Williamsburg, Kentucky (Station), for failing to maintain and make available the required quarterly
issues/programs lists in the Station’s public inspection file. The issues/programs lists inform the public
regarding a broadcaster’s treatment of community issues and the requirement to maintain such lists is part
of a broadcaster’s obligations as a public trustee. Mr. Parks acknowledges that the Station’s public file
did not contain numerous issues/programs lists, but requests reconsideration of the penalty proposed
against him in light of his purported good faith efforts to correct the violations and inability to pay the
forfeiture. We find that the corrective efforts undertaken by Station staff took place after Mr. Parks
received notice of the violations and do not warrant forfeiture cancellation or reduction. However, we
find that reducing the forfeiture to $1,500 is appropriate based on Mr. Parks’s demonstrated inability to
pay.

By the Regional Director, Northeast Region, Enforcement Bureau:

I.

INTRODUCTION

1.
We impose a penalty of $7,000 against Sound Communications, LLC (Sound
Communications) for failing to enclose its antenna structure for AM Station WENY within an effective
locked fence. The Commission’s fencing rules protect the public by limiting access to areas with a high
potential for radio frequency exposure. Sound Communications does not deny that its antenna structure
was not properly enclosed, but argues that the proposed penalty must be cancelled because its violation
was neither willful nor repeated. However, Sound Communications admits that it left its antenna
structure fencing gate unlocked and the gate remained unlocked for several days. As a result, we find no
reason to cancel, withdraw, or reduce the proposed penalty, and we therefore assess the $7,000 forfeiture
the Enforcement Bureau previously proposed.
