Exhibit 38
Description:
EXHIBIT 38

WBTV LICENSE SUBSIDIARY, LLC, LICENSEE OF WBTV, CHARLOTTE, NORTH CAROLINA (THE 'STATION'), IS CURRENTLY OPERATING AT 60% OF AUTHORIZED POWER DUE TO THE UNEXPECTED FAILURE OF TWO OF THE STATION'S INDUCTIVE OUTPUT TUBES. IN ITS EFFORTS TO RESUME FULL AUTHORIZED POWER, THE STATION HAS ORDERED ONE NEW TUBE FROM THE MANUFACTURER, AND IS HAVING THE OTHER TUBE REPAIRED. ACCORDINGLY, PURSUANT TO SECTION 73.1635 (A)(4), THE STATION RESPECTFULLY REQUESTS SPECIAL TEMPORARY AUTHORITY TO OPERATE AT 60% OF AUTHORIZED POWER FOR A PERIOD OF 90 DAYS OR UNTIL IT CAN RESUME NORMAL OPERATIONS, WHICHEVER IS SOONER.
