Exhibits
Exhibit 13
Description:
EXHIBIT 13

WNBF IS OPERATING AT VARIANCE FROM ITS LICENSED NIGHTTIME PARAMETERS DUE TO A DEFECTIVE CONTACTOR WHICH IS STUCK IN THE DAYTIME PATTERN. WHILE THE STATION'S DAYTIME PATTERN IS OPERATING WITHIN LICENSED PARAMETERS, THE STATION MUST OPERATE AT 1 KW NIGHT TO STAY WITHIN AUTHORIZED POWER AT ITS MONITOR POINTS.

THEREFORE, TOWNSQUARE MEDIA BINGHAMTON LICENSE, LLC RESPECTFULLY REQUESTS AUTHORITY TO OPERATE WNBF WITH PARAMETERS AT VARIANCE FOR A PERIOD OF SIX MONTHS WHILE IT REPLACES THE CONTACTOR AND BRINGS THE STATION'S OPERATIONS WITHIN LICENSED PARAMETERS.

Attachment 13


Exhibit 34
Description:
BASIS FOR STA EXTENSION REQUEST

AS PREVIOUSLY REPORTED TO THE COMMISSION, WNBF CONTINUES TO OPERATE AT VARIANCE FROM ITS LICENSED NIGHTTIME PARAMETERS DUE TO A DEFECTIVE CONTACTOR WHICH IS STUCK IN THE DAYTIME PATTERN. TO DATE, DUE TO LOCAL WEATHER CONDITIONS AND THE INABILITY TO SCHEDULE A TOWER CREW (THE CONTACTOR IS HALFWAY UP THE TOWER), STATION PERSONNEL HAVE NOT BEEN ABLE TO REPLACE THE DEFECTIVE CONTACTOR. LICENSEE EXPECTS THAT IT WILL BE ABLE TO DO SO AS WEATHER IMPROVES IN THE SPRING.

IN THE INTERIM, LICENSEE RESPECTFULLY REQUESTS AN EXTENSION OF SPECIAL TEMPORARY AUTHORITY FOR THE STATION'S NIGHTTIME OPERATIONS. LICENSEE WILL NOTIFY THE COMMISSION AS SOON AS THE STATION IS ABLE TO RESUME LICENSED OPERATIONS.
