Exhibits
Exhibit 1
Description:
EXPLANATION

SILENT STATUS WAS OCCASIONED BY THE UNEXPECTED LOSS OF THE TOWER SITE WHEN, ON THE DAY OF THE CONSUMMATION OF THE ASSIGNMENT OF LICENSE, A THIRD PARTY PURCHASED THE TOWER SITE NOTWITHSTANDING APPLICANT'S PENDING CONTRACT TO PURCHASE THE SAME. RATHER THAN PURSUE LEGAL REMEDIES, APPLICANT IDENTIFIED AN ALTERNATIVE SITE AND HAS RECEIVED FCC AUTHORIZATION TO CONSTRUCT THE MODIFIED FACILITY. CONSTRUCTION IS EXPECTED TO BE COMPLETED BY THE MIDDLE OF AUGUST 2010. LOCAL MUNICIPALITIES ARE IN THE FINAL STAGES OF ISSUING ALL NECESSARY PERMITS FOR THE WORK TO BEGIN.

WE REQUEST AUTHORITY TO REMAIN SILENT THROUGH AND INCLUDING SEPTEMBER 28, 2010, IF A RETURN TO THE AIRWAVES AT AN EARLIER DATE PROVES IMPOSSIBLE. EVERY EFFORT IS BEING MADE TO RETURN TO ON-AIR STATUS BEFORE SEPTEMBER 29, 2010.

THE STATION WENT SILENT ON THE DAY THE LICENSE WAS ACQUIRED FROM THE PREVIOUS LICENSEE. IT WAS BELIEVED THAT SILENT AUTHORITY HAD BEEN REQUESTED PREVIOUSLY, BUT HAVING IN RECENT DAYS DISCOVERED NO EVIDENCE TO THIS EFFECT, IN AN ABUNDANCE OF CAUTION THIS REQUEST IS HEREBY SUBMITTED. WE REGRET THE DELAY IN FILING THIS REQUEST.

IN VIEW OF APPLICANT'S EFFORTS TO ACQUIRE AND RETURN TO FULL POWER AN AM STATION THAT HAD BEEN DAMAGED IN RECENT YEARS DUE TO HURRICANE ACTIVITY, AS WELL AS THE RECENT TOLL ON THE REGION DUE TO THE OIL SPILL IN THE GULF OF MEXICO, WE HOPE THE DELAY IN FILING THIS REQUEST WILL PROMPT NO FURTHER ACTION BY THE AGENCY OTHER THAN THE PROMPT PROCESSING OF THIS REQUEST AND ANY ADDITIONAL STA REQUESTS THAT MAY PROVE NECESSARY TO AVOID A YEAR OF SILENT STATUS. WE APPRECIATE GREATLY THE STAFF'S COOPERATION IN FACILITATING THE RETURN OF THIS STATION TO THE AIRWAVES WITH NEW FACILITIES AND NEW PROGRAMMING FOR THE COMMUNITY OF MOBILE, ALABAMA.
