Exhibits
Exhibit 24
Description:
EXTRAORDINARY CIRCUMSTANCES WHICH WARRANT TEMPORARY OPERATIONS

RADIO LICENSE HOLDING CBC, LLC (RLH), RESPECTFULLY REQUESTS THAT THE EXISTING SPECIAL TEMPORARY AUTHORIZATION (STA) FOR RADIO STATION WSSX-FM, CHARLESTON, SOUTH CAROLINA (FACILITY ID 72378) BE EXTENDED FOR AN ADDITIONAL 180 DAYS, PURSUANT TO SECTION 73.1635 OF THE FCC'S RULES. PLEASE SEE FILE NO. BSTA-20161025ABT, AS EXTENDED, BY BESTA-20190503AAR.

STATION WSSX-FM IS LICENSED TO OPERATE ON CHANNEL 236 WITH 100 KW EFFECTIVE RADIATED POWER AT 305 METERS HEIGHT ABOVE AVERAGE TERRAIN. WSSX-FM CONTINUES TO OPERATE WITH 52% OF ITS LICENSED POWER DUE TO ANTENNA AND TRANSMITTER PROBLEMS. AS PREVIOUSLY REPORTED, THE EQUIPMENT NECESSARY TO RETURN WSSX-FM TO LICENSED OPERATION, INCLUDING A NEW ANTENNA, TRANSMISSION LINE, TRANSMITTER, AND ASSOCIATED HARDWARE WAS DELIVERED AND WAS IN A LOCAL STORAGE FACILITY PENDING LANDLORD APPROVAL TO MOVE THE WSSX-FM TRANSMITTER INTO ANOTHER BUILDING AT THE TRANSMITTER SITE. SINCE RLH AND THE LANDLORD WERE ABLE TO REACH AN AGREEMENT, REPAIRS ARE UNDERWAY. GIVEN THE PROGRESS ALREADY MADE, RLH PLANS TO COMPLETE THIS PROJECT BEFORE THE END OF FIRST QUARTER 2020.

ACCORDINGLY, RLH REQUESTS AN EXTENSION OF ITS EXISTING STA FOR A PERIOD OF 180 DAYS, PURSUANT TO SECTION 73.1635 OF THE RULES, TO CONTINUE OPERATING WSSX-FM AT REDUCED POWER. THIS WILL ENABLE THE STATION TO CONTINUE TO SERVE THE RESIDENTS OF CHARLESTON AND THE SURROUNDING AREA UNTIL THE LICENSEE CAN RETURN THE STATION TO FULL LICENSED POWER.
