Exhibit 21
Description:
STA CIRCUMSTANCES

BY NOTIFICATION DATED JANUARY 22, 2010, THE LICENSEE ADVISED THE COMMISSION THAT OPERATION OF KPLO-TV, RELIANCE, SOUTH DAKOTA, HAD BEEN TEMPORARILY SUSPENDED DUE TO THE COLLAPSE OF THE STATION'S TOWER (ASR #1035406). IN AN EFFORT TO PUT THE STATION BACK ON THE AIR WHILE PLANNING THE STATION'S PERMANENT RECONSTRUCTION, THE LICENSEE HEREBY REQUESTS SPECIAL TEMPORARY AUTHORITY TO OPERATE FROM A TEMPORARY TOWER LOCATED AT PRECISELY THE SAME LOCATION AS THE COLLAPSED TOWER. (OUT OF AN ABUNDANCE OF CAUTION, THE FAA HAS BEEN NOTIFIED, BY SUBMISSION OF FORM 7460-1, OF THE PROPOSED TEMPORARY TOWER, WHICH WILL BE SIGNIFICANTLY SHORTER THAN THE TOWER WHICH COLLAPSED. THE FAA HAS ASSIGNED THE REQUEST AERONAUTICAL STUDY NUMBER (ASN) 2010-AGL-599-OE.) ABSENT STA TO OPERATE PURSUANT TO THE PARAMETERS SPECIFIED HEREIN, THE STATION WOULD REMAIN DARK UNTIL THE PERMANENT FACILITY IS REBUILT, WHICH THE LICENSEE ANTICIPATES WILL TAKE APPROXIMATELY 6 MONTHS. THUS, GRANT OF THE INSTANT REQUEST WOULD SERVE THE PUBLIC INTEREST BY PROVIDING SERVICE TO A SIGNIFICANT PORTION OF THE STATION'S VIEWERS. AS DESCRIBED IN THE ENGINEERING EXHIBIT ATTACHED TO THIS REQUEST, THE STA PARAMETERS ARE PREDICTED TO EXTEND MINIMALLY THE STATION'S CONTOUR IN ONE DIRECTION. BECAUSE THAT EXTENSION IS MINIMAL, WOULD NOT CAUSE IMPERMISSIBLE INTERFERENCE TO OTHER PROTECTED FACILITIES, AND IS PROPOSED ONLY IN AN EFFORT TO SERVE AS MANY VIEWERS OF THE LICENSED FACILITY AS POSSIBLE, THE LICENSEE RESPECTFULLY SUBMITS THAT THE MINIMAL EXTENSION PROPOSED SHOULD BE CONSIDERED DE MINIMIS AND REQUESTS THAT THE COMMISSION GRANT THE REQUEST AS PROPOSED.
