EXHIBIT 21

PURSUANT TO THE PROCEDURES ADOPTED IN THE COMMISSION'S PUBLIC NOTICE, FCC 09-6 (REL. FEB. 5, 2009) (THE 'PUBLIC NOTICE'), KAET-DT RESPECTFULLY REQUESTS SPECIAL TEMPORARY AUTHORITY TO DISCONTINUE ITS INTERIM DTV SERVICE AND COMMENCE OPERATION OF ITS AUTHORIZED, FINAL DTV FACILITY (FILE NO. BPEDT-20080612AAK) AT 12:00 AM, ON APRIL 30, 2009, IMMEDIATELY FOLLOWING ITS TERMINATION OF ANALOG SERVICE AT 11:59 PM ON APRIL 29, 2009. CONSISTENT WITH PROCEDURES ADOPTED IN THE COMMISSION'S SECOND REPORT AND ORDER AND NOTICE OF PROPOSED RULEMAKING FCC 09-11, ON MARCH 17, 2009, THE STATION PLANS TO ADVISE THE COMMISSION OF ITS INTENTION TO DISCONTINUE ITS ANALOG SERVICE ON APRIL 29, 2009 AND THEREAFTER TO OPERATE ONLY DIGITAL SERVICE.

AS THE ATTACHED ENGINEERING ANALYSIS REFLECTS, THE STATION HAS DETERMINED THAT THE PROPOSED OPERATION OF ITS POST-TRANSITION DIGITAL FACILITY WILL (1) NOT CAUSE IMPERMISSIBLE INTERFERENCE TO ANY AUTHORIZED ANALOG OR PRE-TRANSITION DIGITAL STATIONS; AND (2) SERVE 99.21% OF ITS PRE-TRANSITION DIGITAL CONTOUR AREA AND 99.95% OF ITS PRE-TRANSITION DIGITAL CONTOUR POPULATION, AND THUS WILL EFFECTIVELY MAINTAIN CURRENT DIGITAL SERVICE. SEE PUBLIC NOTICE AT 6.

BECAUSE THE PROPOSED STA FACILITY IS IDENTICAL TO THE STATION'S AUTHORIZED POST-TRANSITION FACILITY, THE STATION WILL (1) COMMENCE FULL, AUTHORIZED POST-TRANSITION OPERATIONS BEFORE THE TRANSITION DEADLINE, JUNE 12, 2009; AND (2) MAITAIN SERVICE TO VIRTUALLY ALL VIEWERS WHO CURRENTLY RECEIVE THE STATION'S ANALOG OR DIGITAL SERVICE AND WHO ARE PREDICTED TO RECEIVE THE STATION'S AUTHORIZED POST-TRANSITION SERVICE.
