EXHIBIT 13

LINCOLN FINANCIAL MEDIA COMPANY OF FLORIDA ('LINCOLN'), LICENSEE OF WAXY(AM), SOUTH MIAMI, FLORIDA (FAC. ID NO 30837), HEREBY RESPECTFULLY REQUESTS EXTENSION OF ITS SPECIAL TEMPORARY AUTHORITY ('STA') TO OPERATE AT INCREASED POWER TO OVERCOME INTERFERENCE CREATED BY A CO-CHANNEL STATION LOCATED IN CUBA.

AS THE COMMISSION'S RECORDS WILL REFLECT, THIS STA WAS ORIGINALLY GRANTED BY LETTER DATED DECEMBER 23, 1981 FROM LARRY D. EADS, CHIEF, BROADCAST FACILITIES DIVISION OF THE BROADCAST BUREAU, AUTHORIZING OPERATION WITH 25KW, DIRECTIONAL, BOTH DAY AND NIGHT. SEE REF. NO. 8900-LDE. THAT AUTHORIZATION, WITH CERTAIN TECHNICAL MODIFICATIONS, HAS BEEN EXTENDED REPEATEDLY SINCE THAT TIME. THE MOST RECENT STA EXTENSION WAS GRANTED ON MAY 2, 2013 FOR A PERIOD RUNNING THROUGH NOVEMBER 8, 2013. SEE CDBS REF. NO. BESTA-20130404ABA.

DUE TO THE INTERFERENCE IT CONTINUES TO RECEIVE FROM THE CO-CHANNEL CUBAN STATION, LINCOLN RESPECTFULLY REQUESTS AUTHORITY TO CONTINUE BROADCASTING IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE TERMS OF THE EXISTING STA. A GRANT OF THIS REQUEST WOULD SERVE THE PUBLIC INTEREST BY PREVENTING ANY INTERRUPTION OF RELIABLE SERVICE TO WAXY'S BROADCAST AUDIENCE, PARTICULARLY IN LIGHT OF THE FACT THAT WAXY IS THE ENGLISH-LANGUAGE LP2 EAS STATION FOR THE MIAMI, FLORIDA AREA.

ENGINEERING STATEMENT

RADIO STATION WAXY, SOUTH MIAMI, FLORIDA IS LICENSED TO OPERATE ON 790 KILOHERTZ WITH POWER OF 5.0 KILOWATTS, FULLTIME, EMPLOYING DIFFERENT DIRECTIONAL ANTENNA PATTERNS DAY AND NIGHT. WAXY OPERATES UNDER A SPECIAL TEMPORARY AUTHORIZATION (AN STA) WITH 25 KILOWATTS, FULLTIME, EMPLOYING DIFFERENT DIRECTIONAL ANTENNA PATTERNS DAY AND NIGHT. THE 25 KILOWATT POWER LEVEL IS TO OVERCOME, TO THE EXTENT POSSIBLE, INTERFERENCE FROM A STATION OR STATIONS IN CUBA. THE STA DIRECTIONAL ANTENNA PATTERNS WERE SPECIALLY DESIGNED FOR THE 25 KILOWATT POWER LEVEL AND HAVE DIFFERENT SHAPES AND PARAMETERS THAN THE DIRECTIONAL ANTENNA PATTERNS SPECIFIED ON THE STATION LICENSE. THE PRESENT STA ANTENNA PATTERNS WERE FIRST AUTHORIZED IN 1991, WHEN THEY REPLACED FORMER STA ANTENNA PATTERNS THAT HAD BEEN IN USE FOR SEVERAL YEARS PRIOR TO THAT. THE STATION CALL LETTERS IN 1991 WERE WMRZ, WHICH WERE SPECIFIED IN THE ORIGINAL DOCUMENTS RELATED TO THE PRESENT STA OPERATION.

THE ATTACHED WAXY 1991 STA DA PROOF DOCUMENT PROVIDES THE COMPLETE INFORMATION, SUCH AS IS INCLUDED IN A NORMAL FCC FORM 302 APPLICATION FOR LICENSE, UPON WHICH THE 1991 STA WAS BASED. THE ATTACHED WAXY 1991 STA INTERIM AUTHORIZATION DOCUMENT PROVIDES SPECIFICATIONS FOR DIRECTIONAL ANTENNA OPERATION SUCH AS ARE PROVIDED ON A NORMAL FCC LICENSE.

STA OPERATION BY WAXY CONTINUES UNDER THE 1991 SPECIFICATIONS, WITH THE EXCEPTION OF THE GEOGRAPHIC COORDINATES OF THE CENTER OF THE ARRAY. THE ANTENNA STRUCTURE REGISTRATIONS FOR THE TOWERS WERE REVISED IN 2010, BASED ON SURVEY INFORMATION. NO PHYSICAL CHANGES WERE MADE TO THE TOWERS OR THEIR LOCATIONS.
THE NAD 27 GEOGRAPHIC COORDINATES OF THE CENTER OF THE ARRAY WERE DETERMINED IN 2010 TO BE:
25 45 24 N
80 38 22 W

THE ATTACHED WAXY 2010 TOWER ASRS DOCUMENT PROVIDES DETAILS OF THE TOWER LOCATIONS.

INTERFERENCE CONTINUES TO BE RECEIVED WITHIN THE WAXY COVERAGE AREA FROM A STATION OR STATIONS IN CUBA, AS DOCUMENTED IN THE ATTACHED WAXY 2016 STA INTERFERENCE CERTIFICATION. IN ORDER TO BE ABLE TO PROVIDE REMEDIATION FOR THIS INTERFERENCE TO THE EXTENT POSSIBLE WITH 25 KILOWATTS, RENEWAL OF THE STA, WITH THE INDICATED GEOGRAPHIC COORDINATE REVISION, IS REQUESTED.

FOR PURPOSES OF FURTHER CLARIFICATION, WAXY IS NOW LICENSED TO ENTERCOM MIAMI LICENSE, LLC AND THE CURRENT STA EXTENSION GRANTED ON SEPTEMBER 16, 2016 FOR A PERIOD RUNNING THROUGH MARCH 16, 2016 (PLEASE SEE CDBS FILE NO. BESTA-20140924AAM).
