Exhibit 4
Description:
EXHIBIT 4

AS PER 73.1560(D), ENTERCOM BUFFALO LICENSE, LLC, LICENSEE OF WKSE, NIAGARA FALLS, NY, FACILITY ID# 34384 HEREBY NOTIFIES THE COMMISSION THAT IT IS CURRENTLY OPERATING ITS MAIN ANTENNA FACILITIES AUTHORIZED UNDER LICENSE FILE # BMLH-20030303ABH AT APPROXIMATELY 75% OF THE AUTHORIZED EFFECTIVE RADIATED POWER OF 46KW, DUE TO ARCING IN ITS OMNI DIRECTIONAL RCA 6 BAY ANTENNA. WHEN OPERATING AT FULL AUTHORIZED POWER, ARCING CAUSES THE STATIONS TRANSMITTER TO CYCLE OFF AND RETURN TO AIR, OR GO OFF AIR COMPLETELY. BY REDUCING THE WKSE TRANSMITTER POWER BY APPROXIMATELY 25%, FROM 19.5KW TO 14.5KW, THE ARCING HAS SUBSIDED. SO AS NOT TO CAUSE FURTHER DAMAGE TO THE ANTENNA, WHILE AT THE SAME TIME CONTINUING TO PROVIDE ADEQUATE COVERAGE, THE LICENSEE REQUESTS SPECIAL TEMPORARY AUTHORITY TO OPERATE AT THIS REDUCED POWER LEVEL FOR A PERIOD OF APPROXIMATELY 45 TO 60 DAYS.

THE LICENSEE HAS DETERMINED THAT WITHIN THAT 45 TO 60 DAY TIME FRAME IT WOULD BE READY TO INSTALL A NEW 6 BAY OMNI DIRECTIONAL ANTENNA AS A DIRECT REPLACEMENT FOR THE EXISTING 6 BAY RCA OMNI DIRECTIONAL ANTENNA. THE NEW ANTENNA WOULD BE INSTALLED AT THE SAME HEIGHT AND ON THE SAME TOWER AS THE CURRENT AUTHORIZED ANTENNA. WITHIN 10 DAYS OF THE ANTENNAS REPLACEMENT, AND THE COMMENCEMENT OF PROGRAM TESTS, THE LICENSEE WILL FILE A 302-FM LICENSE MODIFICATION APPLICATION DESCRIBING THE REPLACEMENT ANTENNA.
