FCC Proposes $13,000 Fine for KTFV McAllen

The FCC has issued a Notice of Apparent Liability of $13,000 against KTFV-CA McAllen, a Class A Spanish-language television station licensed to Entravision Holdings, LLC, for failing to timely file a license application and for unauthorized operation of the station after its construction permit had expired.

Entravision told the FCC that KTFV was timely constructed, but the station’s license application “was late filed due to an administrative oversight.” The commission did issue a license for KTFV, but it proposed the NAL regardless as the station had operated for three and a half years “without authorization.”

“While the licensee did notify the commission upon recognizing its error,” said the FCC, “we believe the base forfeiture amount is reasonable given the lengthy period of time the station engaged in unauthorized operation and the fact that Entravision, as the licensee of over 100 television and radio stations, should be well versed in the commission’s rules and filing requirements.”
