FCC Rejects Appeal Of Dismissal Of Prometheus Blanket Objection Against FM Translator Applications … Except For One

Open Mic Controller | 14th July 2018


Another attempt by PROMETHEUS RADIO PROJECT, the CENTER FOR INTERNATIONAL MEDIA ACTION,  and COMMON FREQUENCY, INC. to throw a wrench into the FCC's approval for FM translators granted to AM station licensees has been rejected by the Commission, with an appeal of the dismissal of their mass challenge to 994 applications being again dismissed... except for one.

The organizations, objecting to the translators as taking up frequencies that the groups contended should have been allocated for low power FM stations instead, appealed the dismissal of their challenges to 328 licenses, and the Commission ruled that the appeals, filed as petitions for reconsideration, required a showing of standing that the petitioners failed to provide.  However, in one appeal, the FCC ruled that standing was established for PROMETHEUS' PAUL BANE regarding an application by MEGA-PHILADELPHIA for a translator at CAMDEN, NJ, which he contended would be short-spaced to low power WPPM-LP/PHILADELPHIA, to which he is a listener.  Another attempt at establishing standing, by COMMON FREQUENCY's TODD URICK regarding IMMACULATE HEART MEDIA's application for a translator at ROCKLIN, CA, was rejected because URICK did not demonstrate how he would be adversely affected by a grant of the application and because he did not explain why he could not have participated in the earlier round of the proceeding.
