Description:
EXHIBIT 16

TOWNSQUARE MEDIA ABILENE LICENSE, LLC RESPECTFULLY REQUESTS AN EXTENSION OF SPECIAL TEMPORARY AUTHORITY FOR KYYW'S NIGHTTIME OPERATIONS. DUE TO A PROBLEM WITH THE STATION'S DIRECTIONAL ARRAY, KYYW BEGAN OPERATING ON A NON-DIRECTIONAL BASIS FROM TOWER 2 AT 250 WATTS DURING THE NIGHT.

THE STATION'S ANTENNA MONITOR WAS REPAIRED AND CALIBRATED, AND TOWER CREWS HAVE BEEN ON SITE TWICE TO FIX ISSUES WITH LOOPS ON TOWER 1 THEN 3. WHILE REPAIRING THE ARRAY, THERE HAVE BEEN ISSUES WITH COPPER THEFT AT THE SITE. ONE OF THE SAMPLE LINES WAS DAMAGED IN THE LATEST INCIDENT. THE SAMPLE LINES ALSO WERE DAMAGED IN CONNECTION WITH RECENT VANDALISM. KYYW IS STILL OPERATING ON A NON-DIRECTIONAL BASIS AT 250 WATTS ERP UNTIL REPAIRS CAN BE COMPLETED.
