Exhibit 2
Description:
JUSTIFICATION FOR STA EXTENSION REQUEST

WIQH IS LICENSED TO THE CONCORD CARLISLE REGIONAL SCHOOL DISTRICT WITH STUDIOS AT THE CONCORD CARLISLE HIGH SCHOOL. ON APRIL 16, 2015, THE HIGH SCHOOL BUILDING HOUSING THE STATION'S OLD STUDIOS, TRANSMITTER, AND ANTENNA, WAS CLOSED PERMANENTLY AND SUBSEQUENTLY DEMOLISHED.

A NEW CONCORD CARLISLE HIGH SCHOOL BUILDING OPENED ON APRIL 28, 2015. FOR THREE REASONS SPELLED OUT IN THE ORIGINAL STA REQUEST, THE STATION WAS UNABLE TO BROADCAST FROM THE NEW HIGH SCHOOL BUILDING IMMEDIATELY FOLLOWING THE MOVE. THE ORIGINAL STA REQUEST WAS FILED ON MAY 19, 2015. IN A LETTER DATED JUNE 8, 2015, THE ORIGINAL STA REQUEST WAS GRANTED.

WIQH HAS CONSTRUCTED STUDIOS IN THE NEW BUILDING. IN ADDITION, THE TOWER STRUCTURE REFERENCED IN THE ORIGINAL STA REQUEST HAS BEEN ERECTED.

THE LETTER GRANTING THE ORIGINAL STA STIPULATES THAT WIQH IS NOT TO REMAIN SILENT FOR MORE THAN 180 DAYS FROM THE JUNE 8, 2015, DATE OF THE GRANTING LETTER. THAT 180 DAY PERIOD ENDS ON DECEMBER 8, 2015.

HOWEVER, THE STATION IS STILL AWAITING COMMISSION ACTION ON ITS APPLICATION TO MOVE ITS TRANSMITTING FACILITIES TO THE NEW SCHOOL. WIQH FILED ITS APPLICATION (FILE NUMBER 20141212AAN) WITH THE COMMISSION ON DECEMBER 12, 2014.

IT IS THE STATION'S INTENTION TO RESUME BROADCASTING FROM THE NEW CONCORD CARLISLE HIGH SCHOOL AS SOON AS THE COMMISSION ISSUES A CONSTRUCTION PERMIT AND WIQH IS SUBSEQUENTLY ABLE TO CONSTRUCT AND LICENSE NEW TRANSMITTING FACILITIES.

IN THE MEANTIME, HOWEVER, WIQH RESPECTFULLY REQUESTS THAT ITS SPECIAL TEMPORARY AUTHORITY BE EXTENDED.
