Exhibits
Exhibit 38
Description:
STA REQUEST

ON JANUARY 27, 2010, WBAY-TV'S TRANSMISSION FACILITIES EXPERIENCED AN UNEXPECTED TRANSMISSION LINE FAILURE. AS A RESULT, WBAY-TV'S OPERATION IS CURRENTLY LIMITED TO 25 PERCENT ERP.

THE STATION HAS BEEN DILIGENTLY WORKING TO RESOLVE THIS ISSUE AND REPAIR THE DAMAGED LINE. AT THIS TIME, THE STATION IS WORKING ON PLANS TO IMPLEMENT A TEMPORARY SOLUTION TO INCREASE POWER PENDING REPAIR TO WBAY-TV'S FULLY-AUTHORIZED FACILITY. THE STATION PROJECTS THAT THE TEMPORARY SOLUTION CAN BE OPERATIONAL IN APPROXIMATELY 45 TO 60 DAYS AND IN CONNECTION THEREWITH, THE STATION WILL REQUEST ADDITIONAL SPECIAL TEMPORARY AUTHORITY.

IN THE INTERIM, WBAY-TV HEREBY RESPECTFULLY REQUESTS SPECIAL TEMPORARY AUTHORITY TO CONTINUE OPERATING WITH APPROXIMATELY 25 PERCENT ERP PENDING SUBSEQUENT AUTHORITY FOR AND IMPLEMENTATION OF HIGHER POWER WHILE THE TRANSMISSION LINE IS BEING REPAIRED.
