Exhibit 1
Description:
CIRCUMSTANCES REQUIRING SILENT AUTHORITY

AS THE COMMISSION WAS PREVIOUSLY NOTIFIED, THE STATION'S CURRENT LICENSEE, PMCM TV, LLC, CLOSED ON THE ACQUSITION OF THE STATION LATE IN THE DAY ON JUNE 12, 2009. FOLLOWING CLOSING, IT WAS DISCOVERED THAT THERE WERE UNEXPECTED TECHNICAL DIFFICULTIES WITH DELIVERY OF PROGRAMMING TO THE PMCM TV, LLC FACILITIES FOR BROADCAST BY KJWY. THESE DIFFICULTIES WERE COMPOUNDED BY THE FACT THAT, UNTIL SHORTLY PRIOR TO THE TIME OF GRANT AND CLOSING OF ITS ACQUISITION OF THE STATION, PMCM TV, LLC HAD ANTICIPATED ENTERING INTO A LOCAL MARKETING AGREEMENT (LMA) WITH THE FORMER LICENSEE, WHICH HAD OPERATED KJWY LARGELY AS A SATELLITE OF ITS POCATELLO, IDAHO STATION. AT THE REQUEST OF COMMISSION STAFF, HOWEVER, THE LMA WAS REMOVED FROM THE TRANSACTION, AND IT BECAME NECESSARY TO LOCATE PROGRAMMING AND TO DISENTANGLE THE PROGRAMMING FEEDS.

THE LICENSEE HAS ORDERED ALL OF THE EQUIPMENT NECESSARY IN ORDER FOR THE STATION TO RESUME BROADCASTING, BUT IT HAS NOT YET BEEN ABLE TO INSTALL THAT EQUIPMENT. WHILE THE LICENSEE ANTICIPATES THAT THE EQUIPMENT WILL BE INSTALLED AND OPERATIONAL BY JULY 31, THAT DATE FALLS AFTER THE 30TH DAY AFTER SUSPENSION OF BROADCASTING. IN ADDITION, THE LICENSEE HAS BEEN IN ACTIVE NEGOTIATIONS WITH A PROGRAMMING SOURCE AND ANTICIPATES THAT PROGRAMMING WILL BE AVAILABLE FOR BROADCAST BY THE STATION BY JULY 31.

ACCORDINGLY, THE LICENSEE HEREBY SEEKS AN STA FOR KJWY TO REMAIN SILENT PENDING THE COMPLETION OF THE INSTALLATION OF NEEDED EQUIPMENT AND THE AVAILABILITY OF PROGRAMMING FOR BROADCAST. BOTH OF THESE ISSUES ARE CURRENTLY EXPECTED TO BE RESOLVED SHORTLY SO THAT THE STATION MAY GO BACK ON THE AIR ON JULY 31.
