Start Preamble

AGENCY:

Federal Communications Commission.

ACTION:

Final rule.

SUMMARY:

The Commission grants a petition for rulemaking filed by Channel 32 Montgomery, LLC (“Channel 32”), the licensee of WNCF(TV), channel 32, Montgomery, Alabama, requesting the substitution of channel 31 for channel 32 at Montgomery. Channel 32 believes that operation on channel 31 would allow fuller replication of the station's former analog service area, which will significantly increase the geographic area within the station's protected contour. Therefore, the public interest will be served by substituting channel 31 for channel 32 at Montgomery.

DATES:

This rule is effective December 21, 2011.
