Non-Com Hit With $12K Fine And Short Renewal
Gallup Public Radio Station KGLP-FM in New Mexico is hit with a $12,000 fine for missing six years of quarterly issues/programs lists. The station admitted not filing the 21 lists when it applied for its license renewal. The Commission did not go easy on the station, despite the fact it had reconstructed the reports. But the Commission believes the only reason the station admitted the mistake was because it had to during the renewal process. KGLP was only granted a four-year renewal.
The Commission also said, "We believe that the licensee’s violation was a 'serious' violation, as it denied both the public and the Commission any opportunity to review and comment on the station’s programming during much of the past two license terms."
