Sales / Transactions / FCC Actions: Jan. 9, 2012





• Monroe Public Schools is selling its pop WYDM FM 97.5 to Monroe Public Access Cable Television for $25,000 pending FCC approval and closing. In recent years the station had been operated by Monroe County Community College.


• Low power TV station WLPC-LD Ch. 40 Detroit has been granted its license to cover. The station had previously operated on analog Ch. 26, then moved temporarily to Ch. 38 before leaving the air last year while its digital facilities were constructed. The station has been reported as being back on-air and receivable to those in the Detroit area with outdoor antennas.


• Ion Media Networks analog TV translator W48AV Ch. 48 Detroit has applied to change its digital channel to 25 and move from near 9 Mile and Jefferson to Southfield with increased power that if approved would provide the station with much better coverage across the immediate Metro Detroit area. The translator is currently used to rebroadcast Ion's WPXD-TV Ch. 31 Ann Arbor. The application states the operations on Ch. 48 cause interference to a small percentage of viewers of WAQP-TV Saginaw which uses Ch. 48 for its digital broadcasts.


• Next Media News/Talk WSGW AM 790 Saginaw has been granted Special Temporary Authority through July 9, 2012 to operate at reduced power while repairs are made to the station's antenna array due to damage from high winds.


• No notable activity for January 6.
