Start Preamble


Federal Communications Commission.


Final rule; petition for reconsideration.


In MM Docket No. 89-120, the Commission dismissed as moot the petition for reconsideration filed by Lake Broadcasting, Inc., licensee of Station KBMX(FM), Channel 270A (101.9 MHz), Eldon, Missouri, and grantee of the construction permit for Station KFXE (FM), Channel 271A (102.1), Cuba, Missouri. Lake had requested reconsideration of the Report and Order, 57 FR 6561, published February 26, 1992. The Commission dismissed Lake's petition for reconsideration following the denial of certiorari by the U.S. Supreme Court in Lake's appeal of the revocation of its licenses and construction permits. See Contemporary Media, Inc., et al., v. Federal Communications Commission, 214 F. 3d 187 (D.C. Cir 2000), cert. denied, 532 U.S. __ (2001). Michael Rice, Lake's sole owner and president, had been convicted of the felonies of deviate sexual conduct and sodomy of minors. Lake and other licensees owned or controlled by Rice also made repeated misrepresentations to the Commission as to Rice's continued involvement with their stations. With this action, the proceeding is terminated.


Effective May 1, 2001.
