NEW INFO
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
This is a new fine in addition to one in April Tom Taylor reported on, this is his article from Apr 22:

San Diego’s KURS/1040 is also slapped with a $12,000 fine and a four-year license renewal due to violations of the public file rule (missing quarterly lists) and failing to file several biennial ownership reports. Like Rhode Island’s WJMF, KURS essentially turned itself in by checking “No” on the certification box for the quarterly filings. The FCC also finds that KURS “incorrectly certifies that all biennial ownership reports had been filed,” since it missed filing in 2007, 2009 and 2011. KURS has failed to clean up that problem, or to supply the FCC with a “detailed listing of the missing issues and programs” quarterly lists it re-created. Like WJMF in the previous story, the FCC says the conduct by KURS has “fallen far short of the standard of compliance.”

Thanks Tom!
Joe
