Exhibits
Exhibit 1
Description:
RESPONSE TO SECTION I, ITEM 6 -- JUSTIFICATION

CAUSES BEYOND THE CONTROL OF RIVER PARISH RADIO, LLC (THE 'LICENSEE') MADE IT IMPOSSIBLE FOR THE LICENSEE TO CONTINUE OPERATING WCKW-AM AT PRESENT. THE ONGOING EXPENSES OF THE STATION SUBSTANTIALLY EXCEEDED ITS REVENUES CONTINUOUSLY FOR MANY MONTHS WHICH MADE IT NO LONGER FEASIBLE TO OPERATE THE STATION. ACCORDINGLY, STATION OPERATIONS WERE DISCONTINUED AT APPROXIMATELY 6:00 P.M. CDT ON FRIDAY JUNE 30, 2006. THE LICENSEE HAS AGREED TO DONATE THE STATION TO A NONPROFIT RELIGIOUS ORGANIZATION KNOWN AS COVENANT NETWORK AND HAS FILED WITH THE COMMISSION AN FCC FORM 314 ASSIGNMENT APPLICATION (FCC FILE NUMBER BAL-20060630AGI) FOR AUTHORITY TO ASSIGN THE LICENSE FOR THAT PURPOSE. THE PARTIES INTEND TO CLOSE ON THE TRANSATION FOLLOWING FCC APPROVAL. THE DONEE IS FINANCIALLY QUALIFIED TO RETURN THE STATION ON AIR AND HAS AGREED TO DO SO WITHIN 90 DAYS FOLLOWING CONSUMMATION OF THE ASSIGNMENT OF LICENSE.
