Released: April 25, 2014

By the Chief, Video Division, Media Bureau:

I.

INTRODUCTION:

1.
The Video Division issued a Notice of Apparent Liability for Forfeiture (“NAL”) to
Capital Communications Company, Inc. (the “Licensee”),1 based on its apparent violations of (i) Section
73.3526(e)(11)(iii) of the Commission’s rules for its failure to file timely with the Commission the
Children’s Television Programming Reports for Station WOI-DT, Ames, Iowa, and (ii) Section
73.3514(a) of the Commission’s rules for its failure to report those late filings in its renewal application.
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 $6,000 based on the Licensee’s failure to file its
Children’s Television Programming Reports for WOI-DT in a timely manner during four quarters of the
license period and its failure to report these late filings on its renewal application.2
3.
The Licensee filed a response on February 27, 2014.3 In that response, the Licensee
provided evidence in the form of submission confirmation pages and copies of its originally filed
Children’s Television Programming Reports to demonstrate that the reports at issue were in fact filed in a
timely manner.

III.

DISCUSSION

4. The Licensee’s showing demonstrates that the reports at issue were filed in a timely manner.
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.
