Start Preamble

AGENCY:

Federal Communications Commission.

ACTION:

Final rule.

SUMMARY:

At the request of Gray Television License, LLC, licensee of station KDUH-TV, Channel 7, Scottsbluff, Nebraska, and New Rushmore Radio, Inc., former licensee of KDUH-TV (collectively, Petitioners), the Commission has before it an unopposed Notice of Proposed Rulemaking seeking to amend the Post-Transition Table of DTV Allotments to delete channel 7 at Scottsbluff, Nebraska and to substitute channel 7 at Sidney, Nebraska. Petitioners further request modification of KDUH-TV's license to specify Sidney as the station's community of license. Petitioners assert that their proposal to reallot channel 7 to Sidney is based on the technical specifications currently authorized for KDUH-TV and, therefore, the new allotment will be mutually exclusive with the station's existing allotment. Petitioners further state that their proposal would meet the Commission's allotment priorities by providing Sidney with its first local television service. and that Scottsbluff would remain well-served after the proposed reallotment because full-power television station KSTF(TV), channel 29, would remain licensed to that community.

DATES:

Effective July 5, 2016.
