This document also dismissed a counterproposal filed Gateway Radio Works, Inc., licensee of Station WIVY(FM), Channel 242A, Morehead, Kentucky, requesting the allotment of Channel 249A at Livingston, Kentucky, as its first local service. To accommodate this proposed allotment, the counterproposal also requested the reclassification of Station WJXB-FM, Channel 248C, Knoxville, Tennessee as a C0 facility because the station operates below minimum Class C facilities; and the reallotment of Channel 242A from Morehead to Salt Lick, Kentucky, as its first local service and the modification of the Station WIVY(FM) license to specify Salt Lick as its community of license.
