Comments:
KOTV CEASED ANALOG SERVICE ON FEBRUARY 17, 2009. DUE TO INTERFERENCE CONSTRAINTS, KOTV WAS REQUIRED TO REMAIN ON ITS PRE-TRANSITION DTV CHANNEL, CHANNEL 55, UNTIL JUNE 12, 2009, AT WHICH TIME IT COMMENCED OPERATIONS ON ITS POST-TRANSITION DTV CHANNEL, CHANNEL 45. SUCH OPERATIONS INITIALLY WERE ON A PHASED TRANSITION BASIS PURSUANT TO STA. AS OF JUNE 15, 2009, KOTV IS OPERATING ITS FULL, AUTHORIZED FACILITIES ON CHANNEL 45. A LICENSE APPLICATION FOR CHANNEL 45 OPERATIONS IS NOW PENDING. BECAUSE KOTV WAS NOT OPERATING ITS FULL, AUTHORIZED FACILITIES DURING A PORTION OF SECOND QUARTER 2009, THE STATION AIRED RELEVANT CONSUMER EDUCATION NOTICES FROM APRIL 1 TO JUNE 15. SUCH ON-AIR EDUCATION EFFORTS CEASED ON JUNE 15. CONSEQUENTLY, THIS WILL BE KOTV'S FINAL FCC FORM 388 REPORT.
