Description:
EXTRAORDINARY CIRCUMSTANCES

PURSUANT TO SECTION 73.1560(D) OF THE COMMISSION'S RULES, KING BROADCASTING COMPANY ('KING') HEREBY REQUESTS SPECIAL TEMPORARY AUTHORITY TO OPERATE DIGITAL TELEVISION STATION KTVB-DT, BOISE, ID, AT A REDUCED POWER OF 73.9 KW. STATION KTVB-DT BEGAN OPERATING AT REDUCED POWER ON APRIL 1, 2007 DUE TO A PROBLEM WITH ITS MAIN TRANSMITTER. KING HAS ARRANGED FOR REPAIRS OF THE KTVB-DT TRANSMITTER, BUT RECENT WEATHER CONDITIONS HAVE MADE IT DIFFICULT TO ACCESS THE TRANSMITTER SITE. KING ANTICIPATES THAT IT WILL COMPLETE REPAIRS AND RETURN KTVB-DT TO FULL POWER WITHIN THE NEXT SEVERAL WEEKS, AND KING WILL NOTIFY THE COMMISSION ACCORDINGLY AT THAT TIME.

KING'S ANALOG TELEVISION STATION IN BOISE, ID, KTVB(TV), IS OPERATING NORMALLY.
