Exhibits
Exhibit 4
Description:
EXPLANATION FOR THIS NOTIFICATION

KEYT-TV EXPERIENCED A 'COMPONENT FAILURE' IN ITS MAIN TRANSMITTER ON OR ABOUT JANUARY 6, 2013 AND, SINCE THAT TIME, TRANSMITTER FORWARD POWER HAS BEEN REDUCED TO 63-69%. ATTEMPTS TO REPAIR THE FAILED POWER SUPPLY HAVE YIELDED NO IMPROVEMENTS.

ACCORDINGLY, THE LICENSEE HAS ORDERED A NEW POWER SUPPLY FROM HARRIS CORPORATION, WHICH IS EXPECTED TO BE DELIVERED NEXT WEEK. THE LICENSEE EXPECTS THAT KEYT-TV WILL BE ABLE TO RESTORE OPERATIONS AT LICENSED OUTPUT POWER BY THE END OF NEXT WEEK.

THE LICENSEE WILL ADVISE THE FCC, IN A SUBSEQUENT CDBS FILING, WHEN RESTORATION TO FULL POWER HAS COMMENCED.

AGAIN, TO CLARIFY THE SITUATION -- KEYT-TV CONTINUES TO BROADCAST BUT WITH A REDUCTION IN POWER, AS NOTED ABOVE. THIS NOTIFICATION IS GIVEN IN COMPLIANCE WITH FCC RULES, 47 CFR 73.1560. (NOTE: THIS FCC ELECTRONIC FORM REQUIRES A SPECIFIC DATE THAT THE STATION 'WENT SILENT;' BUT, AS EXPLAINED ABOVE, KEYT-TV HAS NOT GONE SILENT.)
