Proposed rule.


This document requests comment on a Petition for Rule Making filed on behalf of American Media General of Texas, Inc., licensee of Station KCOO, Channel 282A, Shafter, California, requesting the allotment of Channel 226A to Shafter, California, in order to permit it to modify its license to specify operation on Channel 226A. This is necessary because American Media General of Texas, Inc. is losing its transmitter site and has been unable to locate an available site that would accommodate operation on Channel 282A. The coordinates for the Channel 226A allotment at Shafter, California, would be 35-30-06 and 119-16-18.


Comments must be filed on or before June 10, 2002, and reply comments on or before June 25, 2002.


Secretary, Federal Communications Commission, Washington, DC, 20554. In addition to filing comments with the FCC, interested parties should serve the petitioner's counsel, as follows: Vincent J. Curtis, Jr., c/o Fletcher, Heald & Hildreth, 1300 North 17th Street, Arlington, Virginia, 22209-3801.
