FCC Seal 2020 Federal Communications Commission

International Aerospace Solutions’ Classic Hits “K-Tahoe” 590 KTHO and 96.1 K241BK South Lake Tahoe CA were deleted after failing to response to multiple FCC inquiries that they were Silent or operating with unauthorized facilities. FCC Field Office personnel and public complaints noted that KTHO went silent in December 2019 after its transmission equipment was deemed abandoned and seized by the tower owner due to nonpayment of rent. The translator was however, noted as being on the air originating programming as KTHO was off the air.

The FCC has deleted the license of New Millennium Communications Group’s 1040 WZSK Everett PA. After an agency inquiry earlier this year after a complaint was filed with the FCC’s enforcement bureau that WZSK may have been silent or operating with unauthorized facilities for over a year, owner Shane Imler replied in June but did not confirm or deny the operating status of the station only claiming “Wzsk has been up and down since the pandemic” and explaining that station’s transmitter was out for repair and its backup at life’s end. The FCC deemed that response to be insufficient.

Community Broadcasters surrendered the license of Sports “ESPN 1310WDKD Kingstree SC as the station ceased operations on November 16.
