Final rule.


The Allocations Branch combines two proceedings, MM Docket Nos. 99-140 and 99-146. This document reallots Channel 255C from Kennett, Missouri to Munford, Tennessee, as the community's first local aural transmission service as requested by Legend Broadcasting in a counterproposal in MM Docket No. 99-140. It also allots Channel 254A at Friars Point, Mississippi, requested in separate counterproposals filed by Legend and Delta Radio Inc. in MM Docket No. 99-146. It also grants Fred Flinn's request to dismiss his petition for rulemaking for the allotment of Channel 254A at North Tunica, Mississippi in MM Docket No. 99-146. Pursuant to agreements between Legend Broadcasting and Ken Reynolds d/b/a Bear Creek Radio, and Olvie Sisk, this document dismisses Bear Creek Radio's counterproposal filed in MM Docket No. 99-140 requesting the allotment of Channel 254A at Marianna, Arkansas and Olvie Sisk's comments in MM Docket No. 99-146 in support of the allotment of Channel 254A at North Tunica, Mississippi.
