Exhibits
Exhibit 38
Description:
ANALOG TERMINATION NOTICE

STATION WUXP-TV, NASHVILLE, TENNESSEE, HEREBY NOTIFIES THE COMMISSION OF ITS INTENT TO PERMANENTLY TERMINATE ANALOG OPERATIONS FEBRUARY 17, 2009 TO PREPARE FOR FULL, POST-TRANSITION DIGITAL-ONLY OPERATIONS ON ITS POST-TRANSITION CHANNEL. ALTHOUGH THE DTV TRANSITION DATE HAS NOT YET BEEN EXTENDED, THIS TERMINATION NOTIFICATION IS BEING PROVIDED OUT OF AN ABUNDANCE OF CAUTION. THIS AUTHORITY IS SOUGHT PURSUANT TO THE THIRD PERIODIC DTV REVIEW REPORT AND ORDER, 23 FCC RCD 2994 (2007). THE INSTANT REQUEST MEETS THE CRITERIA SET FORTH BY THE COMMISSION IN THAT (1) THE TERMINATION OF OPERATIONS IS DIRECTLY RELATED TO THE CONSTRUCTION OF THE STATION'S FULL ALLOTTED POST-TRANSITION DIGITAL FACILITIES AND ENSURES THAT THE STATION WILL BE ABLE TO MEET THE TRANSITION DEADLINE, AND (2) THE LICENSEE WILL COMPLY WITH THE VIEWER NOTIFICATION REQUIREMENTS ESTABLISHED BY THE COMMISSION. IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE PROVISIONS OF THE THIRD PERIODIC REVIEW REPORT AND ORDER, THE STATION INTENDS TO AIR VIEWER NOTIFICATIONS CONCERNING ITS EARLY ANALOG SERVICE TERMINATION, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, INFORMATION ON HOW VIEWERS CAN CONTINUE TO RECEIVE THE STATION'S SIGNAL.
