Educational Station, Inc.

Facility ID No. 180726

Application for a New FM Booster Station
at Ocala, Florida


Adopted: October 31, 2011

Released: November 1, 2011

By the Commission:
The Commission has before it for consideration an Application for Review1 filed by
Great God Gospel and Educational Station, Inc. ("GGG"), seeking review of a denial by the Media Bureau,
Audio Division (the "Bureau"), of a petition for reconsideration of the Bureau's dismissal of an
Application for a new FM booster station at Ocala, Florida.2 In the dismissal letter, the Bureau staff found
that the Application did not comply with Section 73.8603 of the Commission's rules, which states that an
LPFM station licensee cannot have any attributable interest in any other non-LPFM broadcast station.4
Upon review of the Application for Review and the entire record, we conclude that GGG
has failed to demonstrate that the Bureau erred. The Media Bureau properly decided the matters raised,
and we uphold its decision for the reasons stated in its Letter.
ACCORDINGLY, IT IS ORDERED that, pursuant to section 5(c)(5) of the
Communications Act of 1934, as amended, 47 U.S.C. 155(c)(5), and section 1.115(g) of the
Commission's rules, 47 C.F.R. 1.115(g), the Application for Review BE DENIED.
