Exhibit 2
Description:
WFME (AM) NEW YORK, NY - SILENT STA EXTENSION REQUEST EXHIBIT 2

AM BROADCAST STATION WFME (FIN: 29024) WENT SILENT ON 2/15/2021 BECAUSE THE LICENSEE SOLD THE LAND ON WHICH ITS TOWERS ARE LOCATED. FAMILY STATIONS, INC. WAS CONSIDERING ITS OPTIONS WITH RESPECT TO MOVING THE STATION TO ANOTHER SITE AS SOON AS POSSIBLE WHEN IT GAVE NOTICE OF SILENCE AND REQUESTED A SILENCE SPECIAL TEMPORARY AUTHORITY ON 2/24/2021, WHICH THE FCC GRANTED 4/20/2021 (BLSTA - 20210224AAC).

THE LICENSEE REQUESTED ANOTHER ENGINEERING SPECIAL TEMPORARY AUTHORITY (BSTA-20210604AAC) TO OPERATE FROM ANOTHER LOCATION ON 6/4/2021, WHICH WAS GRANTED BY THE FCC ON 6/21/2021. WHILE THE LICENSEE HAS BEEN WORKING DILIGENTLY TO RESUME OPERATIONS ACCORDING TO BSTA-20210604AAC, THE LICENSEE IS UNABLE TO RESUME OPERATIONS BY 10/17/2021 WHEN ITS SILENCE STA EXPIRES. IN THE INTERIM, THE LICENSEE RESPECTFULLY REQUESTS AN EXTENSION OF SILENT SPECIAL TEMPORARY AUTHORITY FROM THE COMMISSION.
