Exhibits
Exhibit 1
Description:
EXHIBIT 1

FOLSE COMMUNICATIONS, LLC, LICENSEE OF KJUN-CA, MORGAN CITY, LOUISIANA HEREBY REQUESTS SPECIAL TEMPORARY AUTHORITY TO ALLOW ITS STATION, KJUN-CA, TO REMAIN SILENT DUE TO THE DESTRUCTION OF THE TOWER AND ANTENNA BY HURRICANE GUSTAV.

ON SEPTEMBER 10, 2008, FOLSE NOTIFIED THE COMMISSION THAT ON SEPTEMBER 1, 2008, THE STATION WAS FORCED OFF THE AIR DUE TO THE TOWER COMING DOWN IN HURRICANE GUSTAV. MOREOVER, THE ANTENNA FOR THE STATION WAS SEVERELY DAMAGED IN THE COLLAPSE.

FOLSE HAS BEEN TOLD THAT THE TOWER WILL BE REBUILT, BUT THERE IS NO TIME TABLE AVAILABLE FOR THIS ACTION NOR HAS FOLSE BEEN ABLE TO COME UP WITH ANOTHER OPTION TO GET THE STATION BACK ON THE AIR IN THE INTERIM. FURTHER, FOLSE STILL IS ATTEMPTING TO OBTAIN A NEW ANTENNA. THUS, FOLSE RESPECTFULLY REQUESTS THAT IT BE GRANTED SPECIAL TEMPORARY AUTHORITY TO ALLOW THE STATION TO REMAIN SILENT FOR SIX MONTHS TO ALLOW TIME FOR IT TO OBTAIN A NEW ANTENNA AND FOR THE TOWER TO HOPEFULLY BE REBUILT.
