Exhibits
Exhibit 38
Description:
EXHIBIT

THE LICENSEE OF STATION WMNO-CA, STUDIO 51 MULTIMEDIA PRODUCTIONS, LTD. (STUDIO 51), RECENTLY DISCOVERED THAT IT FAILED TO FILE ITS RENEWAL APPLICATION. THE RENEWAL APPLICATION WAS DUE BY JUNE 3, 2013 AND THE WMNO-CA LICENSE EXPIRED ON OCTOBER 1, 2013. THE FAILURE TO FILE A RENEWAL APPLICATION WAS AN OVERSIGHT. STUDIO 51 ACQUIRED THE STATION IN 2007, AFTER THE LAST RENEWAL CYCLE, AND FAILED TO CALENDAR THE FCCS RENEWAL FILING DEADLINES. IN ADDITION, UNTIL VERY RECENTLY, STUDIO 51 DID NOT HAVE FCC COUNSEL. HOWEVER, STUDIO 51 HAS NOW RETAINED FCC COUNSEL AND IS IN THE PROCESS OF PREPARING THE STATIONS RENEWAL APPLICATION, WHICH IT WILL BE FILING IN THE NEXT FEW DAYS. THUS, UNTIL THE FCC ACTS ON THE RENEWAL APPLICATION, STUDIO 51 RESPECTFULLY REQUESTS SPECIAL TEMPORARY AUTHORITY TO CONTINUE TO OPERATE WMNO-CA. THE STATION IS A VITAL SOURCE OF LOCAL NEWS AND PROGRAMMING FOR THE MARION-BUCYRUS REGION OF OHIO.
