Federal Communications Commission.


Final rule; petition for reconsideration.


This document takes action on two separately filed petitions for reconsideration of the Report and Order in MM Docket No. 92-214. See 60 FR 62219, published December 5, 1995. The Commission dismissed as moot the petition for reconsideration filed by Lake Broadcasting, Inc., licensee of Station KBMX(FM), Channel 270A, Eldon, Missouri, and permittee for Station KFXE(FM), Channel 271A, Cuba, Missouri. 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.

The Commission also denies the petition for reconsideration filed by Central Missouri Broadcasting, Inc. Central Missouri failed to provide information demonstrating that the allotment of Channel 221A at Dixon, Missouri, was an unusable channel or that the public interest would be better served by the allotment of Channel 243A in lieu of Channel 221A at Dixon.
