Start Preamble

AGENCY:

Federal Communications Commission.

ACTION:

Proposed rule.

SUMMARY:

This document requests further comment on a proposal filed on behalf of KQQK License, Inc., licensee of Station KQQK-FM, Channel 293C, Galveston, Texas, proposing the reallotment of Channel 293C from Galveston to Missouri City, Texas, and the modification of the Station KQQK-FM license to specify Missouri City as the community of license. 64 FR 55223, published October 12, 1999. The original Notice of Proposed Rule Making proposed the modification of the Station KQQK-FM license as a first local service for Missouri City. However, on August 30, 2000, the Commission adopted a Report and Order in MM Docket No. 99-26, DA 00-2057, released September 8, 2000, which substituted Channel 287A for Channel 285A at Galveston, Texas, reallotted Channel 287A to Missouri City, and modified the license of Station KLTO to specify operation on Channel 287A at Missouri City. As a consequence, the proposal in this proceeding will no longer be providing a first local service to Missouri City. For this reason, the Commission is affording KQQK License and other interested parties an opportunity to comment on the proposal in the context of a competitive service for Missouri City and the removal of the sole local FM service from Galveston.
