FCC Enters Consent Decree with Wiley College’s KBWC-FM Marshall over Public File Issues

The FCC has entered into a consent decree with Wiley College, licensee of Station KBWC-FM, Marshall, 
Over issues arising from the FCC’s of the station’s license renewal application.  The FCC’s Audio Division had suspended processing of KBWC’s license because the station did not comply with its online station public file obligations in section 73.3527 of the FCC’s rules.   

Section 73.3527 requires radio station licensees to maintain an online public inspection file and to upload certain documents to the FCC’s public inspection file database throughout the year. 
The FCC said it is crucial that stations “maintain online public inspection files that are complete and up to date because the information in them directly affects, among other things, the public’s ability to be informed about a station’s compliance with its obligations.”  

KBWC has agreed to implement a comprehensive compliance plan to ensure future compliance with its 
online public inspection file obligations and, one year after entering into the consent decree, submit a 
compliance report to the FCC’s Audio Division.
