Attachment 13


Exhibit 16
Description:
CIRCUMSTANCES WARRANTING STA

THE LICENSEE RESTORED OPERATION ON NOVEMBER 14 WITH THE ASSISTANCE OF THE PROPOSED BUYER OF THE STATION, PURSUANT TO A TIME BROKERAGE AGREEMENT (SUBMITTED WITH A PENDING LICENSE ASSIGNMENT APPLICATION, FILE NO. 20121031AAP). HOWEVER, THE TRANSMITTER HAD BEEN VANDALIZED. AS A RESULT, WHILE THE FULL LICENSED NIGHTTIME POWER OF 29 WATTS COULD BE ACHIEVED, ONLY THE SAME 29 WATTS DAYTIME COULD BE ATTAINED (RATHER THAN THE 1 KW AUTHORIZED). THE PROPOSED BUYER IS EAGER TO HAVE FULL POWER DAYTIME OPERATION RESTORED AS QUICKLY AS POSSIBLE. A NEW 1 KW TRANSMITTER IS SCHEDULED FOR DELIVERY IN LATE NOVEMBER. IN THE MEANTIME, SPECIAL TEMPORARY AUTHORITY IS REQUESTED TO AUTHORIZE THE STATION TO TEMPORARILY OPERATE WITH 29 WATTS BOTH DAY AND NIGHT IN ORDER TO SATISFY THE REQUIREMENT THAT THE STATION RESTORE OPERATION NO LATER THAN NOVEMBER 25, PURSUANT TO THE STAFF GRANT ON SEPTEMBER 28, 2012 OF SILENT STA (BLSTA-20121129BJB).
