Texas radio stations were required to have file their license renewal applications by April 1.
The FCC fined Guillermo Garza $3,000 for failure to timely file a license renewal application for KWMC-AM Del Rio.
Holy Spirit Oil Filled Ministry was fined $1,500 for failure to timely file a license renewal application for KERC-LPFM, Kermit.
The FCC said neither station provided an explanation for the untimely filing.
Both licensees have 30 days to pay the proposed forfeiture or file a written statement seeking reduction or cancellation of the proposed fine.
