Exhibit 1
Description:
KGIR -- JUSTIFICATION FOR SILENT STA

KGIR RESPECTFULLY REQUESTS AUTHORITY TO REMAIN SILENT BECAUSE FLOOD WATERS CONTINUE TO PREVENT OPERATION OF THE STATION. BY LETTER SENT VIA CERTIFIED MAIL ON JUNE 25, 2019, TO THE MEDIA BUREAU BY KGIR'S CHIEF ENGINEER, THE LICENSEE NOTIFIED THE COMMISSION OF SUSPENSION OF OPERATIONS ON JUNE 17, 2019, FOR THIS REASON. ON JUNE 17, 2019, THE CAPE GIRARDEAU AREA BECAME INUNDATED WITH FLOOD WATERS FROM THE MISSISSIPPI RIVER WHICH PERSIST AT THIS TIME. THE RIVER GAUGE AT CAPE GIRARDEAU AT 8:00 AM LOCAL TIME TODAY (JULY 15) WAS AT 37.25 FEET, WHEREAS FLOOD STAGE IS 32 FEET.
HTTPS://WATER.WEATHER.GOV/AHPS2/HYDROGRAPH.PHP?WFO=PAH&GAGE=CPGM7 (VISITED JULY 15, 2019). THE REMNANTS OF TROPICAL DEPRESSION BARRY WILL BRING ADDITIONAL HEAVY RAIN (3-5 INCHES EXPECTED) TO THE AREA. HTTPS://WWW.SEMISSOURIAN.COM/STORY/2621421.HTML (VISITED JULY 15, 2019). A NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE FLOOD WARNING AND A FLASH FLOOD WARNING IS CURRENTLY IN EFFECT FOR CAPE GIRARDEAU. HTTPS://WWW.ACCUWEATHER.COM/EN/US/CAPE-GIRARDEAU-MO/63701/WEATHER-WARNINGS/329439 (VISITED JULY 15, 2019). THE KGIR SITE IS UNDERWATER. LICENSEE DOES NOT KNOW WHEN IT WILL BE ABLE TO ACCESS THE SITE AND BEGIN CLEAN-UP. AFTER LICENSEE IS ABLE TO ACCESS THE SITE, IT WILL NEED TO ASSESS THE DAMAGE TO KGIR'S EQUIPMENT AND THE BUILDING ITSELF. IN ADDITION TO THE PHYSICAL DAMAGE, LICENSEE IS CONCERNED ABOUT THE POSSIBILITY OF MOLD GROWING INSIDE THE BUILDING AND COMPLICATING ITS RECOVERY EFFORTS AT A TIME WHEN MANY PEOPLE IN THE AREA WILL ALSO NEED FLOOD REMEDIATION SERVICES.
