Exhibit 36
Description:
REQUEST FOR FURTHER EXTENSION OF STA

THE INSTANT STA EXTENSION REQUEST IS BEING FILED IN AN EFFORT TO CONTINUE TO PROVIDE SERVICE TO THE PUBLIC WHILE THE APPLICANT WORKS TOWARD PERMANENT RECONSTRUCTION OF KPLO-TV'S TOWER.

AS THE COMMISSION STAFF IS AWARE, THE LICENSEE OF KPLO-TV IS CONTINUING TO EVALUATE ITS OPTIONS FOR PERMANENT RECONSTRUCTION OF ITS TOWER (AND RESTORATION OF ITS FULL AUTHORIZED OPERATIONS). TO THAT END, MEETINGS HAVE BEEN CONVENED WITH VARIOUS STAKEHOLDERS, INCLUDING NATIVE AMERICAN TRIBE REPRESENTATIVES AND COMMISSION STAFF. THE LICENSEE IS CONTINUING TO WORK WITH ITS ENVIRONMENTAL AND CULTURAL RESOURCES CONSULTANT TO DETERMINE A FINAL PLAN. THE LICENSEE IS CURRENTLY EVALUATING MULTIPLE SITE OPTIONS. THE LICENSEE IS ACTIVELY WORKING TOWARD A SOLUTION BUT THERE ARE MULTIPLE ISSUES TO WORK THROUGH, AND, CONSEQUENTLY, THE PROCESS REMAINS ONGOING. THUS, IT IS ANTICIPATED THAT THE INSTANT STA EXTENSION REQUEST MIGHT NOT BE THE LAST EXTENSION REQUEST.

THE PARAMETERS SOUGHT IN THE INSTANT EXTENSION REQUEST ARE IDENTICAL TO THOSE APPROVED IN THE INITIAL STA GRANT IN FILE NO. BDSTA-20100212AAH AND SUBSEQUENTLY EXTENDED IN FILE NO. BEDSTA-20100915ABG. FOR CONVENIENCE, A COPY OF THE ORIGINAL ENGINEERING STATEMENT IS ATTACHED.
