Exhibit 40
Description:
REQUEST FOR STA

UNIVERSITY BROADCASTING, INC. ('UBI'), LICENSEE OF ANALOG TELEVISION STATION KGEB, TULSA, OKLAHOMA, HEREBY FILES THIS REQUEST FOR SPECIAL TEMPORARY AUTHORITY TO ALLOW IT TO OPERATE KGEB(TV) AT REDUCED POWER. UBI IS ALSO, WITH THIS FILING, REQUESTING THAT THE SILENT NOTIFICATION FILED ON JULY 21, 2008 BE RESCINDED AS IT WAS INADVERTENTLY FILED. AT NO TIME DID KGEB(TV) CEASE OPERATIONS.

UBI ALSO REQUESTS WITH THIS FILING THAT ITS PRIOR STA REQUEST, FILED ON AUGUST 11, 2008, BSTA - 20080811AAV BE DISMISSED AS MOOT.

ON JULY 12, 2008, KGEB'S HIGH POWER DIACRODE TUBE FAILED, LEAVING THE STATION OPERATING AT 4.7% OF ITS LICENSED POWER. ON AUGUST 11, 2008, UBI FILED AN STA REQUEST TO ALLOW IT TO OPERATE AT 4.7% POWER UNTIL SUCH TIME AS IT WAS ABLE TO OBTAIN A REPLACEMENT TUBE. IT HAS SINCE DONE SO AND HAS MANAGED TO GET KGEB(TV) OPERATING AT 50% POWER. HOWEVER, UBI STILL REQUIRES SPECIAL TEMPORARY AUTHORITY TO ALLOW IT TO OPERATE KGEB(TV) AT 50% POWER FOR SIX MONTHS SO THAT IT CAN CONTINUE TO WORK ON THE TUBE TO GET THE BEST POSSIBLE PERFORMANCE AND POSSIBLY GET IT BACK TO 100% POWER.
