Start Preamble


Federal Communications Commission.


Proposed rule; denial.


Sun Media, Inc. requested the reallotment of Channel 252C1 from Metropolis, Illinois to Paducah, Kentucky, and the modification of Station WRIK-FM's construction permit accordingly. See 64 FR 59728, November 3, 1999. The petitioner's rule making proposal was denied because the difference in population between the two communities did not justify removing the third local transmission service from the smaller community of Metropolis to provide the larger community of Paducah with its sixth local transmission service.
