Exhibits
Exhibit 1
Description:
REASON FOR SILENT AUTHORITY

WUMG AND WAVM ARE SHARE-TIME STATIONS OPERATING FROM THE SAME TECHNICAL FACILITIES LOCATED AT MAYNARD HIGH SCHOOL.

MAYNARD HIGH SCHOOL BUILT A NEW BUILDING FOR THE WUMG AND WAVM TECHNICAL FACILITIES, BUT WILL NOT HAVE AN OCCUPANCY PERMIT FOR THE NEW BUILDING UNTIL EARLY AUGUST. THE OLD BUILDING IS NOW BEING STRIPPED AND EVERYTHING MUST BE OUT BY JUNE 21, 2013.

TO BUILD TEMPORARY TECHNICAL FACILTIES WOULD HAVE COST OVER $4,000 FOR TRAILERS, TEMPORARY ELECTRICAL POWER, AND TEMPORARY INTERNET WHICH DID NOT APPEAR TO EITHER LICENSEEE TO BE COST-EFFECTIVE. THEREFORE, THE TWO LICENSEES ELECTED TO GO SILENT PENDING THE MOVE TO THE NEW BUILDING, AND BOTH WUMG AND WAVM WENT SILENT ON JUNE 11, 2013. THE STATIONS EXPECT TO RESUME OPERATIONS IN APPROXIMATELY MID-AUGUST, 2013.
