Exhibit 4
Description:
CIRCUMSTANCES WARRANTING STA

THE APPLICANT CURRENTLY HOLDS A CONSTRUCTION PERMIT (BPH-20070911ABG) AUTHORIZING A CHANGE IN SITE AND CITY OF LICENSE FROM HOUMA TO JEAN LAFITTE, WHICH IS BEING TOLLED DUE TO THE PENDENCY OF AN APPLICATION FOR REVIEW. NONETHELESS, THE APPLICANT HAD DETERMINED THAT IT WOULD PROCEED WITH THE AUTHORIZED CONSTRUCTION NOTWITHSTANDING THE LINGERING CONCERNS CAUSED BY THE APPEAL AND HAD BEGUN WORK. HOWEVER, IT WAS FORCED TO STOP AT THE REQUEST OF LOCAL AUTHORITIES DUE TO THREATS OF MISSISSIPPI RIVER FLOODING. IN LIGHT OF THE UNEXPECTED INTERRUPTION, THE APPLICANT ANTICIPATES COMPLETING CONSTRUCTION OF THE NEW PERMANENT SITE EARLY NEXT YEAR.

IN THE MEANTIME, THE LANDLORD OF THE CURRENT SITE HAS ASKED THAT KXMG VACATE AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. INITIALLY, THE LANDLORD HAD AGREED TO LET THE STATION REMAIN WITHOUT PAYMENT OF FURTHER RENT FOR A RELATIVELY BRIEF PERIOD WHILE THE NEW SITE WAS BEING PREPARED, BUT THE LANDLORD NOW NEEDS TO FREE UP THE CURRENT SITE IN ORDER TO OBTAIN A LONG-TERM PAYING TENANT.

ALTHOUGH THE APPLICANT WAS PLANNING TO APPLY FOR THIS STA SHORTLY, BY SHEER COINCIDENCE ON THURSDAY AUGUST 4 THE PLATE TRANSFORMER OF ITS EXISTING TRANSMITTER SUFFERED PERMANENT DAMAGE, AND A REPLACEMENT PART IS ESTIMATED TO TAKE 7-8 WEEKS TO FABRICATE. IN THE MEANTIME, THE STATION IS OPERATING WITH A 5 KW VINTAGE HARRIS TRANSMITTER, BUT THE MANUFACTURER NO LONGER SUPPORTS THIS MODEL AND ITS RELIABILITY IS TENUOUS. INDEED, TO PROLONG ITS LIFE THE SUBSTITUTE TRANSMITTER IS BEING OPERATED AT LESS THAN ITS RATED OUTPUT. (A SEPARATE STA TO OPERATE AT REDUCED POWER WILL BE FILED.)

THE CURRENT REQUEST FOR STA IS BASED UPON TWO FACTORS. FIRST IS THE IMMINENT LOSS OF THE STATION'S EXISTING SITE, AS NOTED ABOVE. SECOND IS THE APPLICANT'S DESIRE TO BEGIN SERVING ITS NEW CITY OF LICENSE (FOR WHICH KXMG WILL BE THE FIRST AND ONLY LOCAL STATION) PRIOR TO THE TIME WHEN IT CAN COMPLETE CONSTRUCTION OF ITS PERMANENT NEW SITE. IN ORDER TO DO THAT, IT HAS LOCATED A TEMPORARY SITE WHICH WILL ENABLE IT TO PLACE A 70 DBU CONTOUR OVER ALL OF ITS NEW CITY OF LICENSE WHILE STATISFYING ALL INTERFERENCE PROTECTION REQUIREMENTS. IN ORDER TO MINIMIZE THE TIME NEEDED TO BEGIN OPERATION OF THE FACILITIES PROPOSED IN THIS STA REQUEST, AND AS EVIDENCE OF ITS DESIRE TO BEGIN SERVICE TO JEAN LAFITTE AS SOON AS POSSIBLE, THE APPLICANT HAS ALREADY ARRANGED FOR DELIVERY OF A TRANSMITTER AND OTHER EQUIPMENT NEEDED TO IMPLEMENT THE STA REQUESTED HEREIN.

WE RESPECTFULLY SUBMIT THAT THE SPECIAL TEMPORARY AUTHORITY REQUESTED HEREIN WILL SERVE THE PUBLIC INTEREST BY ENABLING KXMG TO BEGIN SERVICE TO ITS NEW CITY OF LICENSE NOTWITHSTANDING THE DELAYS IT HAS ENCOUNTERED IN CONSTRUCTING ITS PERMANENT AUTHORIZED FACILITIES, UNTIL SUCH TIME AS ITS PERMANENT AUTHORIZED FACILITIES CAN BE COMPLETED.
