Exhibits
Exhibit 38
Description:
STA EXTENSION REQUEST

STEIN BROADCASTING CO., INC. (STEIN), LICENSEE OF KXOX-FM, SWEETWATER, TEXAS (FIN: 63198) (THE 'STATION'), RESPECTFULLY REQUESTS AN EXTENSION OF THE SPECIAL TEMPORARY AUTHORITY ('STA') ORIGINALLY GRANTED TO STEIN ON AUGUST 17, 2006. SEE FCC FILE NO. BLSTA-20060801AAF.

ON MARCH 29, 2005, STEIN SUBMITTED A TIMELY FILED LICENSE RENEWAL APPLICATION FOR THE STATION. SEE FCC FILE NO. BRH-20050329ADK.    NOTWITHSTANDING, ON JULY 12, 2006 THE MEDIA BUREAU TERMINATED STEINS AUTHORITY TO OPERATE THE STATION, ASSERTING THAT THERE WAS NO RECORD OF ANY SUCH APPLICATION BEING FILED.   ON AUGUST 11, 2006, STEIN FILED A PETITION FOR RECONSIDERATION (THE 'PETITION') OF THE MEDIA BUREAU'S DECISION TO TERMINATE STEIN'S AUTHORITY TO OPERATE THE STATION, NOTING THAT THE STATION HAD IN FACT TIMELY SUBMITTED ITS LICENSE RENEWAL APPLICATION AND THAT A TIMELY COPY OF THE APPLICATION WAS INDEED AVAILABLE IN THE COMMISSIONS APPLICATION FILING SYSTEM. IT APPEARS THAT SOME PROBLEM OCCURRED WITHIN THE SYSTEM IN ACCEPTING THE APPLICANTS FILING FEE, RESULTING IN THE APPLICATION BEING TRAPPED IN DATABASE LIMBO RATHER THAN BEING ACCEPTED FOR FILING. THAT PETITION REMAINS PENDING.

IN AN ABUNDANCE OF CAUTION, ON JULY 17, 2006, STEIN ALSO RE-FILED ITS LICENSE RENEWAL APPLICATION (SEE FCC FILE NO. BRH-20060717ABN) USING AN ALTERNATE FORM OF FEE PAYMENT, AND ON JULY 19, 2006, STEIN REQUESTED SPECIAL TEMPORARY AUTHORITY TO CONTINUE OPERATING THE STATION PENDING THE COMMISSION'S REVIEW OF THE RECONSIDERATION REQUEST AND THIS APPLICATION. THE STA WAS SUBSEQUENTLY GRANTED.   

AT THIS TIME, THE STATION'S PETITION FOR RECONSIDERATION AND LICENSE RENEWAL APPLICATION REMAIN PENDING. AS THE COMMISSION IS AWARE, THE STATION IS THE ONLY AM BROADCAST STATION LICENSED TO SWEETWATER, TEXAS, AND CONTINUED OPERATION PURSUANT TO SPECIAL TEMPORARY AUTHORITY WHILE THESE MATTERS ARE RESOLVED IS IN THE PUBLIC INTEREST. THEREFORE, AN EXTENSION OF SPECIAL TEMPORARY AUTHORITY FOR AN ADDITIONAL 180 DAY IS REQUESTED.
