Exhibits
Exhibit 20
Description:
STA PURPOSE

KAKW LICENSE PARTNERSHIP, L.P. ('KLP'), LICENSEE OF KTFO-CA (ANALOG CHANNEL 31) AND PERMITTEE OF KTFO-CD (DIGITAL CHANNEL 36), HEREBY REQUESTS SPECIAL TEMPORARY AUTHORITY FOR A PERIOD OF 45 DAYS TO CONTINUE TO OPERATE WITH ITS LICENSED ANALOG FACILITIES ON CHANNEL 31 AFTER THE STATION HAS COMPLETED CONSTRUCTION OF KTFO-CA ON DIGITAL CHANNEL 36.

KLP IS NEARING COMPLETION OF THE BUILDOUT OF KTFO-CD ON CHANNEL 36 AND ANTICIPATES THAT THE STATION WILL COMMENCE DIGITAL SERVICE BY THE END OF MAY 2010. FOLLOWING THE COMPLETION OF CONSTRUCTION OF KTFO-CD ON DIGITAL CHANNEL 36, KLP REQUESTS AN STA TO CONTINUE TO OPERATE KTFO-CA ON ANALOG CHANNEL 31 FOR A BRIEF PERIOD OF 45 DAYS.

THE CONTINUED OPERATION OF KTFO-CA WILL SERVE THE PUBLIC INTEREST BY ALLOWING THE STATION TO CONTINUE TO DELIVER PROGRAMMING TO ALL OF ITS VIEWERS WHILE GIVING KLP THE OPPORTUNITY TO NOTIFY VIEWERS OF THE STATIONS TRANSITION TO DIGITAL-ONLY OPERATION.

IN ADDITION, THE STATION'S DIGITAL TRANSITION WILL TAKE PLACE DURING THE AIRING OF THE 2010 FIFA WORLD CUP FROM MID-JUNE THROUGH EARLY JULY 2010, WHICH WILL BE AIRED EXCLUSIVELY ON KTFO-CA. GRANT OF THE REQUESTED STA WILL ENSURE THAT THE STATION'S VIEWERS DO NOT LOSE ACCESS TO THIS EXTREMELY POPULAR AND WIDELY VIEWED SPORTING EVENT.
