Start Preamble


Federal Communications Commission.


Final rule.


The Commission denies request of joint petitioners Atlantic Broadcasting Co., Inc., permittee of Station WSIM(FM), Channel 287C3, Fair Bluff, North Carolina, and The Waccamaw Neck Broadcasting Company, licensee of Station WPDT(FM), Channel 286A, Johnsonville, South Carolina. The Report and Order denies the request for the reallotment of Channel 286A from Johnsonville, South Carolina, to Olanta, South Carolina, as the community's first local aural transmission service, because it would remove the community's sole local transmission service without countervailing public interest benefits. It denies as moot the reallotment of Channel 287C3 from Fair Bluff, North Carolina, to Litchfield Beach, South Carolina, as the community's first local aural transmission service.
