Start Preamble


Federal Communications Commission.


Final rule; application for review, denied.


In MM Docket No. 97-107, the Commission denied an application for review filed by Olvie E. Sisk, licensee of Station WCNA(FM), Channel 240C3 (95.9 MHz), Potts Camp, Mississippi. Sisk had requested review of the Report and Order, 64 FR 38,592, published July 19, 1999, which the Commission denied because it found that the staff had properly denied in the Report and Order Sisk's petition for rulemaking (RM-9023) seeking the reallotment of Channel 240C3 from Potts Camp to Saltillo, Mississippi. The staff relied upon strong Commission policy against removal of a community's sole aural broadcast transmission service absent a compelling showing that a waiver of this prohibition is warranted. Sisk's allegations of his station's financial peril fell well short of justifying such a waiver. With this action, the proceeding is terminated.
