Federal Communications Commission.


Proposed rule.


This document requests comments on a petition for rulemaking filed by Heritage Communications, Inc. requesting the reallotment of Channel 236C0 from Glasgow, Kentucky, to Bowling Green, Kentucky, and modification of the license for Station WGGC to reflect the changes. Channel 236C0 can be allotted to Bowling Green at coordinates 36-54-43 and 86-11-21. The license for Station WGGC was modified to specify operation on Channel 236C0 in lieu of Channel 236C at Glasgow, Kentucky. See BMLH-19990728KA. The proposal complies with the provisions of Section 1.420(i) of the Commission's Rules, and therefore, the Commission will not accept competing expressions of interest in the use of Channel 236C0 at Bowling Green.


Comments must be filed on or before April 19, 2004, and reply comments on or before May 4, 2004.


Office of the Secretary, Federal Communications Commission, 445 Twelfth Street, SW., Room TW-A325, Washington, DC 20554.
