Exhibit 39
Description:
PURPOSE STATEMENT

AS REPORTED TO THE COMMISSION BY LETTER DATED OCTOBER 31, 2008, KRWF(TV) SUFFERED A MALFUNTION TO ITS ANALOG TRANSMITTER ON OCTOBER 22, 2008. KRWF HAS BEEN UNABLE TO PROVIDE ANALOG SERVICE SINCE THAT TIME. DESPITE THE LICENSEE'S COMMERCIALLY REASONABLE BEST EFFORTS, IT HAS BEEN UNABLE TO REPAIR THE ANALOG TRANSMITTER. THEREFORE, THE LICENSEE REQUESTS SPECIAL TEMPORARY AUTHORITY FOR THE KRWF ANALOG SERVICE TO REMAIN SILENT DUE TO TRANSMITTER MALFUNCTION. KRWF'S AUTHORIZED DIGITAL SERVICE HAS NOT BEEN AFFECTED.

THIS EXTENSION OF EXISTING LEGAL STA IS FILED IN ORDER TO CONTINUE THE CURRENT AUTHORITY FOR THE KRWF ANALOG SERVICE TO REMAIN OFF THE AIR THROUGH THE NEW DTV TRANSITION DEADLINE OF JUNE 12, 2009.
