Start Preamble


Federal Communications Commission.


Final rule.


The staff grants a rulemaking petition jointly filed by Little Dixie Radio, Inc., KESC Enterprises, Inc., and Southeastern Oklahoma Radio, LLC, to reallot and change the community of license for Station KESC(FM) from Channel 279C1 at Wilburton to Channel 279C1 at Okemah, Oklahoma, as a first local service. To prevent the removal of the sole local aural service at Wilburton, the staff approved the “back-fill” reallotment and change of community for Station KMCO(FM) from Channel 267C1 at McAlester, Oklahoma, to Channel 267C1 at Wilburton, Oklahoma. With this action, the proceeding is terminated.


Effective June 26, 2006.
