Description:
EXHIBIT 1 - REQUEST FOR EXTENSION OF CP

GEORGIA TELEVISION, LLC ('LICENSEE'), PERMITTEE OF A NEW REPLACEMENT TRANSLATOR TO SERVE NEWNAN, GEORGIA,(THE 'STATION'), HEREBY REQUESTS AN EXTENSION OF THE EXPIRATION DATE FOR THE ABOVE-CAPTIONED DIGITAL REPLACEMENT TRANSLATOR CONSTRUCTION PERMIT. LICENSEE HAS NOT YET COMPLETED CONSTRUCTION OF THE STATION'S DIGITAL FACILITIES, AND THE PERMIT IS DUE TO EXPIRE ON JUNE 17, 2015. THIS IS THE FOURTH REQUEST FOR EXTENSION.

LICENSEE HAS NOT YET BEEN ABLE TO COMPLETE A TOWER SURVEY TO CONFIRM THAT THE TOWER FROM WHICH THE REPLACEMENT TRANSLATOR IS TO OPERATE WILL SUPPORT THE ANTENNA AND FEED LINE. ONCE THAT HAS BEEN COMPLETED, LICENSEE WILL BE ABLE TO SET A BUDGET FOR THE PROJECT, ORDER ALL EQUIPMENT, AND DETERMINE AN APPROPRIATE TIMETABLE FOR CONSTRUCTION.

IN ADDITION, ON OCTOBER 10, 2014, THE COMMISSION RELEASED A THIRD NOTICE OF PROPOSED RULEMAKING (NPRM) (DA 14-151) SEEKING COMMENT ON MEASURES TO FACILITATE THE FINAL CONVERSION OF LOW POWER TELEVISION (LPTV) AND TV TRANSLATOR STATIONS TO DIGITAL SERVICE AND CONSIDERING ADDITIONAL MEANS TO MITIGATE THE POTENTIAL IMPACT OF THE INCENTIVE AUCTION AND THE REPACKING PROCESS ON LPTV AND TV TRANSLATOR STATIONS. INCLUDED IN THE NPRM WERE PROPOSED RULES GOVERNING THE PROCESSING PRIORITY FOR THOSE DIGITAL REPLACEMENT TRANSLATORS THAT ARE DISPLACED IN THE AUCTION AND REPACK. THE COMMISSION HAS NOT YET RELEASED FINAL RULES ON THE ISSUE. ACCORDINGLY, LICENSEE REQUESTS AN EXTENSION OF THE STATION'S CONSTRUCTION PERMIT TO PROVIDE LICENSEE WITH ADDITIONAL TIME TO CONSTRUCT ITS NEW DIGITAL FACILITIES FOR THE STATION WHILE A DECISION IS PENDING ON THE FINAL RULES.
