Cromwell CEO Bud Walters Still Waiting


Cromwell CEO Bud Walters filed a request last November with the FCC to have one of his AM stations (WTCJ-AM) rebroadcast on an FM translator in Tell City, Indiana. The Commission, despite its stated goal of improving the sound on the AM dial, still has not made a decision. With help from the NAB's Jane Mago, this week, Cromwell has filed more paperwork to try to move his request along. The document (READ IT HERE) states that this approval should have been easy because there are no competing applications, despite the channel being available for many years.

Mango also dug up a case involving Ashbacker Radio Corp. and the FCC back in 1945 to help jar the FCC and move this request along. "Ashbacker presents no bar to approving the Tell City request. The Commission placed the Tell City request on public notice on November 21, 2012, approximately eight months ago. No other parties have stepped forward with an objection, let alone a competing application. And, there is ample spectrum available in the market to accommodate future applications."
