WV station fined $7,000 by FCC

Rock WKLC (Rock 105), St. Albans-Charleston, WV, has been fined $7,000 by the FCC for a late application for license to cover new facilities and subsequent unauthorized operation.

The station applied for new facilities in June of 2004 after its tower site was destroyed. The permit was granted, with an expiration date in July of 2007. The station failed to file a covering license application by then, and nearly four years later, an application for modification of the license was filed, explaining that the station had been completed before the permit expired.
